Ancestors’ Surnames Apron (embroidered)




The Ancestors’ Surnames Apron (embroidered) is personalised with the surnames of five generations of your ancestors (that’s your surname, the surnames of your parents, your grandparents, your 8 great, grandparents and your 16 great, great grandparents). You get to choose which surname appears in the middle of your design and its colour. I will create your design placing the other surnames around the central name and choosing their colours and fonts. Once your design is complete, I will send it to you for you to check (especially the spellings) and approve before I make your apron. The back of the apron is made from the same material to cover up the back of the embroidery design.  Other apron designs are available.

This is a great way to showcase your family history research.  The apron makes a perfect gift for the genealogist in your family and your relatives!

Size & materials:  approx. 58 cms wide and 82 cms long.  Made from cotton drill and webbing. Colours: black fabric, red webbing and red, orange and yellow lettering or cream fabric, red webbing and red, black and grey lettering. If you would prefer a different colour scheme please contact me at to discuss your requirements before ordering.

Washing instructions:  wash on a gentle cycle.  Iron the embroidery with a cloth between the apron and your iron to help protect the embroidery work. Iron on a low heat.
