Since I love to bake and cook I have someone around the house who just loves to get up on a big chair and help mommy. So for Christmas I thought I would try to make him a little chef hat and apron so he won't get as dirty while cooking with me. I really love how the chef hat turned out (Thanks to my cousin Pamela!!). I followed a free pattern found at you can make this; the pattern called for making the hat out of double weave cotton which is just a stronger cotton so it stands up like a real chef hat but since I found the cotton at a discount store $1.99/yard I just used iron on interfacing to make the hat stiffer. Then Pamela helped me and sewed the pieces together. And thanks to my mom for her patience as I dug through a basket filled with different styles and colors of letters we finally found EBEN to put his name on the front of the hat.
To match his little hat I made an apron for him as well. You can kind of see it here its the colorful alphabet and numbers. I looked a bunch of different patterns and designs on line and just gave it a shot. He really loves to cook with mama now and gets excited to put on his special cooking wear!
For more works for me ideas head on over to we are that family
