I was presented with a challenge this year when I was asked if I had any ideas for a Daddy-to-be gift. I can't remember the last time I have even had to come up with a regular Father's Day gift. So, I started looking around on the Internet, and this is what I decided to do. I made a "Daddy Doodie" apron filled with all the essentials for the Daddy-to-be. (I'm sure that name is trademarked somewhere; I promise I'm not trying to rip anyone off!)
I went to JoAnn Fabrics and found an apron on sale. I already had stencils and fabric paint so I was set there. I then headed to the Dollar Store to find the remaining essentials. I did want there to be something useful in there in the end so I did go to a baby store and get a few different kinds of cloth diapers. Here is what I came up with:
There were many varieties of aprons online, but I found this one and it fit my needs perfectly. I stenciled in the letters and then painted them.
Next, I needed to make a "Gas Mask" since I couldn't find one in my frugal budget. I used scrap fabric and some bias tape. I think it gets the point across.
Then, I just made labels for everything using my Cricut (I tried to come up with some clever names, but that is hard for me!). I put it all together and wrapped it up for the Daddy-to-be.
I hope he enjoys it - even though it is really just a silly gift!
