Gather together supplies:
Home Depot .99 tool bag
2 contrasting shades of acrylic paint
painters masking tape
large stencil
sponge brushes
Tape off around The Home Depot orange block square with painters tape.  Press firmly as to get a really close seal against the canvas cloth.
Completely paint in the taped off inner area of the Home Depot square with your darkest shade choice of paint.  You will most likely need more than one coat of paint.  Use your foam brush and let the coats of paint dry in between.  Let dry thoroughly before proceeding.
Choose your lightest paint color and add it to the stencil with your foam brush.
Be sure to carefully center the stamp in the middle of the block section you painted, so that it is even.
You can see in this photo that I didnt heed my #5 directions. :(  Trial and error.  Didnt want you to make the same mistake.
Let stamped image dry.
Here are several of the stamped aprons that I created for the Flea Market Under Glass event I did with Sue and the Otten Bros. gang.
