Little Chef Hat & Apron

Last year, my sister had my grandfather make my niece a super cool custom play kitchen for Christmas. (Sorry, I don't have a picture, so you'll just have to take my word for it.) She still loves playing with it all the time, so I thought this year I'd make her a whole bunch of felt food. Then my sister rained on my parade and said she already had way more play food than she could ever use.

Well, phhhft. Fine then. I'll just make her this super cute chef hat and apron instead.

I tried to get pictures of Kaeleigh modeling it for me before giving it to her just in case because Christmas is super hectic and I wasn't sure I'd remember to snap a picture then. Most of the pictures, however, looked like the one above. She was certainly in a silly mood that afternoon.

This hat was so quick and easy to make. I followed Amanda's tutorial over at The Little Giggler.

The apron was just as fast and simple. I got the tutorial from Jess at Craftiness Is Not Optional.


It just ties in back so she'll have plenty of room to grow.

And guess what...

I actually made my own bias tape for the first time for this project! I was surprised at how easy it really was, so I'll definitely be doing it more often. It's a much cheaper option and ensures a perfect match to your project!

Turns out I did have a chance to snap a quick picture of Julia wearing her new chef hat and apron, though.

She loved it! :o)
And just for good measure, one more of the goofy K-ster...
