Making personalized aprons is a fun project to do, and it's a great idea for gifts, too! Instead of featuring the person's name on the apron, you show what food they like or dislike by crossing out the word. You create an image on the computer with the person's favorite / least favorite foods listed in a fun way with different fonts. Then you iron transfer this design on to the apron. This is especially fun if you're making gifts for a number of members of a family.
Create a fun and interesting image on the computer that highlights what this person prefers in terms of food. Use different fonts and place them haphazardly in an interesting way. Mirror the image before printing on iron transferable paper. Then transfer on aprons which you either sew yourself, or use basic ones from the store.
