Hello everyone!!  Kymona here to share how to create a clean and simple embroidered Mother’s Day apron for the Mother in your life.

I have to admit, I’ve never done embroidery before but it was really easy with the ColorBox Erasable Fabric Ink Pad.  I recommend starting with a small scale project like this to hone your embroidery skills before taking on larger projects.

You’ll need these supplies to create this Mother’s Day embroidered apron:

Supplies need KTracey copy



Keep a variety of Colorbox Crafter’s Ink Cat’s Eyes and embroidery floss available so you can create with any color you like.

Let’s get started:

Gently ink the stamp using the ColorBox Erasable Fabric Ink.  Then stamp directly onto the fabric apron.

Place the embroidery hoop directly over the stamped image, centering the image in the hoop before tightening the screw.  The embroidery hoop will keep the fabric tight and in place while you stitch the design.

Using the stamped image as a guide, start stitching from the back of the fabric to the front. Tie a knot on the end of the first piece of floss to stop it from pulling through to the front of the fabric. Use a simple running stitch (in and out in a row) along the stamped heart design.

For a beginner, this process takes about 10 minutes to complete. Be careful to make sure your stitches are all about the same length.

Once the initial heart was completely stitched. continue stitching around the perimeter to close the gaps between the first set of running stitches.

Thread the needle with a second color of floss and stitch petals at the tip of the heart using a straight stitch.

Remove the embroidery hoop and use water to wipe away the Colorbox Erasable Fabric Ink from the fabric.

Stamp a sentiment using ColorBox Crafter’s Ink in Berry and Aquamarine. Iron the fabric to remove any wrinkles and to heat set the ColorBox Crafter’s Ink.
