I recently finished a fun project for my granddaughter. She turned three in May and, as has been my tradition for three years anyway, I try to think of a gift I can make for her. So far I have made a rag doll and doll-sized quilt and puppets. At Christmas last year I made her an apron because she always wants to be in the kitchen when her daddy is cooking and Daddy has an apron. Lately, I’ve noticed that aprons are becoming more popular again. There are many websites with information about making a variety of styles for children and adults. Here are just a few:

The pattern I used was one I actually bought: Simplicity 3949.
As my granddaughter’s birthday approached I was thinking about what I would make for her and decided on a chef’s hat to go with her apron. I just used some of the scraps from the apron and white fabric to make the rest.
It was a simple gift but I think she liked it. If you look at her photo you’ll see what I mean.
Her little sister is about to have a birthday. I’ve been busily working on her gift but you’ll have to wait a couple of weeks to see it. It’s a surprise!
