    What I've been working on

    I am busy making Chef aprons and Chef hats for the grandkids. These are fun to make! This is where I found the pattern. http://makingitfun.blogspot.com/2009...-chef-hat.html
    I changed a few things for mine. I didn't make it reversible and I didn't put the O-rings on it. I think my Grandson will love it because he loves Bob the Builder and the stitching on the pocket has tow trucks!
    I have 2 more boy ones to make and one for my Granddaughter. Her's will be Strawberry Shortcake and the other two boys will be monkeys and bugs. Hope you like it!

    Those are wonderful! I wanted to get some done for Christmas for my grands but I'm finishing their quilts. I'm hoping maybe Valentines Day. I would mail them out with some cookie cutters. Thanks for the link to the pattern.

    That is so adorable. I made aprons for two of my grandchildren last year. N.O. Saints and one out of Rooster fabric. Thanks for sharing.

    Thank You, thank you!! My not so young daughter asked for an apron this year. (She doesn't cook!!) It does show adult sizes too!!

    If you didn't make it reversible, how did you finish the edges? Double-turn under? Inquiring minds want to know?

    These are so darned cute!

    yes I double-turned the edges. You could also use binding if you prefer. I finally finished the other 3 as well. I will post them ASAP. Merry Christmas!
