Welcome to Costco, I love you. Best. Movie. Ever.
This a quick -- and hilarious -- costume for Idiocracy fans. It takes me about an 1 and a half to make one, and they're great fun to wear to conventions! :D

Note: You need a vector-based design program like Adobe Illustrator to create the graphics via this tute. It can also be done via freezer-paper method or some other design program, also.

  • Step 1

    Lay your white/muslin fabric out flat, and measure 38 inches (length) from selvage to selvage. Measure 15 inches wide. Cut.
    Round the edges.

  • Step 2

    Cut the neck hole:
    Find the center of the rounded rectangle, mark it, and then cut a circle with a circumference of 26 inches.

  • Step 3

    Sew your bias tape on, following curves all the way around the exterior, then the collar area.

    Stitch tape into 4 16 inch straps and attach on the sides of both front and back of the apron. These ties will hold the apron on your body.

    Step 4

    Prepare your iron-on design. Don't forget to reflect (reverse) so text will appear properly when ironed on.

    I use Adobe Photoshop and the following image for my own apron.

    Use a photo of yourself, face only (preferably with a goofy expression) and desaturate. You may want to decrease contrast as well.

    Don't forget "Welcome to Costco, I love you" at the bottom and the modified Costco font at the top.
