I LOVE THESE SO MUCH! This set is quite possibly one of the cutest things I've made to date. =) When I was up north at my Grandma's we were looking at kid aprons and we found these. I was so excited because I wanted to make one for my niece. While looking around for apron patterns we stumbled upon a chef's hat. HOW CAN ANYONE PASS UP A CHEF'S HAT? I do realize its possible I'm more excited about this than my niece will be, but I'm okay with that! =)
Here are the fabulous patterns!!!
Apron from Living with Punks; Mini Me Apron Set
Chef Hat from Stardust Shoes for Michael Miller; Chef's Hat
The patterns are very well done and don't need any extra explanation. I only did a couple things differently. For the apron I edge stitched the entire apron, not just the bottom. Also, I didn't have any elastic thread on hand so I just sewed on some flower buttons to the pockets. For the Chef's Hat I finished the inside edge with my serger rather than the binding and it worked great.
I just can't get enough of the Michael Miller cupcake fabric! It's too cute! I used some other pink fabrics that I had in my stash to complete the set. For fusible interfacing I used Pellon 911FF for the Chef's Hat band. It was what I had in my craftroom and it was perfect! Exactly the right weight, in my opinion.
The apron is lined too!
I love the pleats!
It's adjustable so she'll be able to grow into it!
I might have to make one for my husband!!! =) As soon as I showed him the hat he started doing an impression of the the Swedish Chef from the muppets.
