Kid's Apron with Artesprix Markers

Hi! I love that the Artesprix sublimation markers in the March kit from The Hedgehog Hollow can be used on any fabric containing polyester! I headed out to my local craft store and picked up a kid's apron for my son to decorate! He loves to cook and craft with me and he needs an apron of his own!

I wanted to let Jax (3 years) have creative freedom since this is his apron - but I did have to help him a bit! If you haven't watched my video on how to use the Artesprix sublimation markers along with your stamps I encourage you to click here and watch! He picked out which stamps he wanted - the Keep on Trucking stamp set from Your Next Stamp is his current favorite! I used the black marker and colored on the stamp and stamped them onto plain typing paper. I used the same process as in my video - work in small areas using my MISTI so that I can double stamp to get a crisp black outline.

Then I let him color in his images! He had so much fun! Once he was done I heated up my iron, put the image face down onto the apron, and pressed with the hot iron for about 4 minutes. I do want to mention that these images did not turn out as vibrant as my last project because this apron is only 50% polyester. Artesprix recommends that you use at least 80% polyester, but I still love how it turned out!

I used the black marker and wrote his name onto a piece of computer paper and used the iron for 4 minutes to transfer the image onto the top of the apron. Remember that images will be mirrored once they are applied so if you are using text you will need to write the mirror image onto the paper! Thankfully his name was easy to do!

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you'll try these markers on other fabrics around your house!
