What is Chuck Norris' favorite cut of meat?

A very sweet friend of mine
 asked me to make an apron for her hubby.
I asked her if she had a color or theme in mind.

She said 
"is Chuck Norris a theme?"


I immediately started searching the internet
 for Chuck Norris fabric.
 Sadly......I found none.
Then I searched ebay for Chuck Norris t-shirts
and found this one that was food related.
I thought it was perfect, but it was used
and had a stain VERY close to the "roundhouse".
I had her look at it.
She loved it, bought it and sent it to me.
Here is what I came up with.
I used Wonder Under to make an applique
out of the t-shirt graphic.
I used brown twill tape to make a frame around
the graphic that allowed me to get 
close to the lettering, covering the stain.
I used heavy brown cotton canvas for the apron.

I added a large pocket that is divided into 3.
She asked for a "belt loop" to thread a dish towel through
like they do on Top Chef :)

I'm happy with the way it came out.
I hope she'll be happy too.
Who wouldn't love a little bit of Chuck Norris for Christmas?
I mean.....seriously?


  1. That belt loop thing is awesome....I added it to all the man aprons I've made.
    Love this a lot!!

  2. HAHA that's cute - very appropos for a Chuck Norris fan! You did a good job coming up with the appropriately "themed" fabric!
