mini chef

ok. NOW Sadie is really ready to cook in her kitchen. Before now she was not fully prepared for the messiness of cooking with felt…the lint, the er…loose threads I always seem to miss. But now with her new apron, she’s ready to go!

I used an old child’s apron my mom dug up for Sadie to use as a bib the other day. It was pretty simple to make, the hardest part was choosing the fabric. It’s reversible too, with a pocket on the other side, but Sadie was being a bit disagreeable, so these are the only pics I got.

It’s just a simple apron shape, with pockets added (I also sewed a few smaller parts of the pocket for spoons and such, see the first pic), then I basted the two pieces together, and made some binding tape to use for the edging/straps. Not on the bias, cause I didn’t have enough fabric (which would’ve been better, oh well). It still worked fine! (check out my bias tape tutorial here)

Anyways…I love watching her wear this while playing with her kitchen. Next up-a tablecloth and some dishtowels!

P.S. Check me out over on Ruffles and Stuff! Disney is featuring my i spy bag for her daily feature, and my ruffly bib (my entry for her ruffle contest), is shown too! I loove her blog…it’s so fun and she is super nice!
