Because of discovering and browsing Craftster, I'm in a crafty mood lately and decided because I had a lot of birthdays coming up this summer, that I would make everybody something nice. I already made an American Mcgee's Alice bag for a friend of mine and the next birthday coming up was that of my little brother.

of course I had to make something special. Last year he moved into his own apartment, but is still missing some essentials for in his kitchen, like scales and matching plates and stuff like that. So I bought the scales for him and went for an apron to spice the present a little up.

I didn't want to make a simple apron because personally I think that would've been boring and after shopping with him and my dad I noticed he liked a zombie shirt very much. Alas it was too expensive, so I made him a Zombie apron, which he hopefully would like as well. I used the same colors as the shirt and gave it a little twist.

This is the apron:

I first drew a basic shape of the head and and hand with pencil on white fabric already cut out in an apron shape. And then started splashing with some fabric paint in different colours of green and red and many other colors.

After it dried I gave the head more detail and color with fabric crayons and ironed it so it would stay on, whenever he throws it in the washingmachine. And then finished sewing the apron.

That is one wicked awesome present.  I don't even use aprons normally but I would totally find myself making excuses to wear that ("What, honey?  No, I'm not baking, I'm just boiling water for tea...you never know, it might splash..." etc).

Thanks for all the nice comments. It was my brother's birthday today, so I have given it to him and he loved it. So there will be coming more handmade goodies for birthdays. Cheesy

LOL, my hubby would love this!  I think the best part about a zombie apron (other than the obvious love and fine detail that you've put into yours) is that if it gets stained with BBQ sauce or something, it just adds to the magic of it.  Wink
