I have that fabric in a tablecloth!

Looks cute!
12  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 55 ENTRIES / Mama's sassy apron! on: October 05, 2010 07:34:19 PM
So, I've been a Mama fan for nigh on years now, and when I heard about this challenge I was super SUPER excited. Coincidentally, one of my derby teammates and fellow crafty babes, McShovin, just discovered the joys of Cooking Mama for the DS. So with our powers combined, we came up with this cutie:

Shovie sewed the apron from a vintage pattern and came up with the pixelated Mama picture on Photoshop.

I put together the Mama by using fusable interfacing to stick handcut pieces of fabric to the apron. We mostly used basic quilting cottons, with the exception of some shiny silver fabric for her knife.

To give it some extra flair, we each embroidered some details:

Shovie embroidered the Cooking Mama logo and turned it into a pocket...

And I added this little "Let's cook" banner to the neckline.

Then you tie it up with a cute little bow in the back!

Sorry the pictures are a bit grainy - she goes to nursing school and I work two jobs so we can really only get together in the evenings, so thus our lighting wasn't super great. We had a ton of fun making it, particularly the challenge of collaborating and still coming up with something awesome.

Hope you like it!

I am particularly liking this because once I embroidered a picture of my roommate's cat eating a piece of pizza and I don't think anyone appreciated it quite as much as I did.

Neat! This reminds me a lot of the Maurice Sendack book Outside Over There.

That's awesome. That's a common expletive in my house these days.

The first time I knit this pattern it was gigantic. I recommend knitting it on size 6's.

So if  I was to do this:how do you wash the garmets?
Just the gentle cycle and hang dry?

I would guess so. Honestly, I've run stuff I've embroidered through a normal laundry run and it's come out okay, but better safe than sorry I suppose.

HAHAHA Love 'em!

Can't you just picture Munch making some joke about how that's the closest he's been to girl parts since his third divorce...

First: The onesies are ridiculously awesome!

Second: What type of pen do you use to draw on the press 'n seal? Does the press 'n seal allow the ink to dry before embroidering?

Thanks! I generally use just a sharpie or something. It usually dries pretty quick.
