Father’s Day fever is in full swing at Lia Griffith HQ – we are surrounded by color palettes of navy and copper, gold and gray, it’s rich and glorious and we’re rather excited for the Dads in our lives. Last month we shared our adorable treasure box for the little ones to fill. Today we’re going a little more grown up with these apron iron-ons for the guys to use when they’re in the kitchen or out in the yard cooking up a yummy BBQ for the family. (Side note: Our model/hubby of designer Lindsay made us these delicious chicken skewers that disappeared after the shoot. I do think we should award him with the BBQ King apron). There are two designs in our DIY apron lineup. We made the BBQ King design in gray and gold which is perfect for the guy who thinks he’s a master of the grill. The simple white print of the BBQ tools and beer bottle is super easy to cut and iron-on – and can be achieved without a cutting machine if you want to cut by hand. Simple to achieve and perfect for the Dad who loves to entertain – even if he’s happiest just entertaining the kids! Our navy blue aprons were found here on Amazon and the three colors of iron-on were purchased from Cricut. Use the SVG file if you have a cutting machine, or download the PDF if you will be cutting by hand. With the PDF version, you will need to mirror the image before printing it onto iron-on transfer paper. We cut our designs on our Cricut Explore Air cutting machine in reverse, peeled off the iron-on backing, laid the designs onto our fabrics then ironed on the hottest setting for 30-60 seconds until plastic starts to crinkle and let hang to dry. Check back over the next couple weeks for lots more fab DIY Father’s Day projects including that handsome bar towel he has over his shoulder – we have SO many coming your way. Enjoy! ~ Lia
