Today’s post isn’t actually a tutorial, it is just some pictures of the first sewing project that I ever did by myself: a toddler apron & chef’s hat! I had made other things with the direct supervision of my mother or mother-in-law—quilts, scrunchies, and pajama pants—but it wasn’t until just before my son’s second birthday (my 29th birthday) that I got my very own sewing machine and ventured out into the sewing world alone.
My son has always loved to cook with us, so I decided to make him his own apron and chef’s hat for his second birthday so that he could be like Daddy. (My husband loves to cook, although he’s not around much to do so.) I was so thrilled with the way that the apron and chef’s hat came out, and I just swoon over the pictures of my little man. He is now a five year old, lanky BOY. Sigh. They grow up way too fast.
Since I was a total beginner, I obviously didn’t make up the patterns for this project, so I will just share with you the tutorials that I used. The chef’s hat tutorial that I used has vanished from the internet, but I found a similar one for you. Toddler apron tutorial HERE. Kid chef’s hat tutorial HERE.
Cutie. I love the way he sticks out his tongue when he’s concentrating really hard. He still does it.
