Daddy-to-be Gift

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!
