You can probably tell by now; I love sewing for my little nieces. Watching their excitement when they try on something aunty sewed for them brings me such joy. I really wish I had known how (and had the time) to sew when my boys were little, I would have loved to make boys clothes! I found this great adorable little chef gift set in the book One-Yard Wonders. It’s the most used book on my sewing shelf, and these wonderfully sweet little inspirations is a major reason why.
Pattern: Kid’s Chef Hat and Apron
Pattern Description: You can never have too many fun, handmade gift ideas for children. This Chef hat and apron is the perfect gift for a little up-and-coming chef. You might consider packaging the set with cookie decorating supplies for the aspiring young baker in your life.
Pattern Sizing: Waist band is designed to fit 20″-23″ waist, but it can be adjusted up or down depending on the child. My niece is 5 (wears a size 7T) and it fits her perfectly, though the hat could be a little smaller around the headband area.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes! Spot on!
Were the instructions easy to follow? Very easy and a lot of fun to make.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I love the versatility. I could add pockets, rickrack, or any number of additional embellishments.
Fabric Used: Alexander Henry‘s Apples and Pears in Pink and Michael Miller Ta Dots in Lipstick.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: Nope, none, I just followed along with the original design.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yes, this made a wonderful gift for my niece who loves to come over to my place and make ice-cream!
Conclusion: A great pattern that makes a unique gift for the kiddos!
