Caleb and Alice love playing kitchen these days. They are constantly making me food, bringing me tea, and feeding their dollies and animals. So I thought it would be fun to make them their own chefs aprons along with dishclothes, dish towels, and oven mitts for Christmas. I followed this pattern for the apron and then added the cute details. I just made up the pattern for the oven mitts, dish towels, and washcloths.
The floral fabric that I used for Alice’s apron used to belong to Bob’s Grandma Wiegers. Alice’s middle name is Florence, after Grandma Wiegers, so I wanted to try to use this fabric to make Alice something. I was orginally going to use it for her curtains but those plans were changed. I love how her apron turned out using the vintage fabric. Its so darn cute I could eat it. My new machine lets me sew letters, so I put their names on the aprons too. I’m sure they’ll be all over that. I wanted to add big big pockets so they could fill them up with all the food, plates and tea cups they can. I can’t wait to see them running around in these cooking up a storm for me, daddy and all of their little lovies.
