Kids Baking Apron
My daughter is turning 9 next month and let me tell you a little bit about this sweet girl of mine. She is the star baker in the family. I’ve shared a few of her treats on Instagram, but I really want to start a kid’s baking series where she shares her desserts here on the blog. Madilynn is always thinking of new dessert recipes to make. Some of my favorites have been her ice cream cakes, lime meringue cake, and she’s a pro at making imposter food treats. She made crepes and made them look like tacos! I’m constantly impressed by her creative mind and patience in the kitchen. I wanted to make her a special apron for her upcoming birthday in her favorite colors.

Holographic Heat Transfer Vinyl application
- Import and size your SVG file to fit your apron. I found this SVG design on etsy then sized it to about 6 inches wide.
- Offset your design and cut separately, placing your HTV shiny side down. Using the offset tool in the silhouette studio creates a thick layer that gives your project dimension. Don’t forget to mirror your image in the Silhouette software! Cut using the autoblade setting and remove excess heat transfer vinyl.
- Apply the thick layer first, the purple outline layer in my case. Tip: lightly press the iron (no steam) down and cool before removing the plastic layer. I found that ironing it twice (when applying the second layer) made the first layer shrink a bit. I would definitely recommend only pressing the iron on the first layer for few seconds. Just enough to adhere the design.
- Align your second layer on top and firmly press the iron for 10 seconds. Cool and gently peel plastic layer off.
I’m thinking about making a baking gift basket filled with a cookbook, baking tools, and sprinkles. Would you guys like too see it with a printable? Let me know and I can share in the next few weeks.
