2. Buy vinyl table cloth material, lay it down and measure the sizes you'll need to cover the already existing design on the apron.

3. Sew this fabric down in sectioned columns so that you have pockets to hold your cooking tongs and band aids.

4. Now create a drawing on grid paper, or use an iron down pattern.

5. Transfer the design to the bottom of the apron with pencil.

6. Wrap the hoop around the traced design on the apron and tighten the hoop down. Use that area to run the needle up and down to fill in the embroidery lines (check out a few helpful stitches here).

7. Move the hoop over, as needed, to complete the design.
8. Once done, wear and enjoy!
