So I previously shared about the Daddy Apron that I made for Honey as a gift to him from Kiggster during our baby shower. Well, of course, I had to have a gift to him from me! I saw these Daddy Scrubs online and thought they were a really neat idea!
Materials I Collected/Purchased for the Project:
Hair Dryer (Optional: dries fabric marker quicker)
|Displaying his scrubs proudly to the crowd…I hope!|
|Is that a “what the heck is this” look or “wow, I’m excited” look?!|
I didn’t have a stencil and didn’t want to buy one so the words were written free-handed and I don’t have the neatest handwriting or write in a straight line so this was really going to be a challenge for me! I put a towel inside the scrubs in case the fabric marker leaked out too much ink and the nice part was, if I messed up, I just took a damp towel and wiped off parts of the mess up without it looking smeared. I actually worked on the pocket first and just like MDs have their names embroidered there, Honey would also have his title, “Daddy.” After I finished the pocket, I ran to the bathroom and ran it under a blow dryer. It recommended allowing it to dry but I didn’t have time or a place for it so the blow dryer seemed to be the best option. Then I did the same routine for the back side and wrote, “I’m The Daddy.” Then I also wrote his full name and the title “daddy” near the seam of the pant legs. I realize that might be a lot of words for not a lot of pant leg but oh well, it got kinda fun with the fabric marker so I just went for it! I finished the project, dried it with the blow dryer, wrapped it up, and hid it somewhere secretive in the house before Honey came home. I think I did well with timing! So instead of $40 plus shipping, I spent about $5 for the marker and may have even had a 40% off coupon for it too!
