I made an apron for my chef roommate for christmas this year:
http://www.styrofoamkitty.com/content/Holidays03/deathchef2.jpg

At my local cooking store, I found a white cotton apron for $4.  I dyed it black with Rit Dye.

I used iron-on letters I had laying around the house for the wording.

I found a good skull & crossbones in a clip art gallery and blew it up and traced it with white felt (25c) and cut it out and stitched it on with embroidery thread (33c).

I bought these metal spike studs at the local craft store in the leather-working section (i guess punk rock has totally been homogonized, huh?) and I hammered them on.  They were kind of expensive, at like $6, but I only used half of them.

But hey, my roommate liked it!

Sorry the pictures are so big, I'll resize them on Monday.

Studs at the craft store? When I was a kid we had to HUNT for our punk rock studs. The walk to the leather store was up hill, both ways...
