My FIL has just got himself a new bbq and we're going over for Christmas breakfast so he can cook for us, yay! I thought he might like something suitably fashionable when he grills, do here it is...

Apron front:


Name on front (black fabric paint on black cotton so it doesn't deter from the design:


Apron back:


Mitt front:


Mitt back:


Loop and button detail:


Plain cotton fabrics with fabric paint. Mitt is lined with 3 layers of fleece on either side and free-hand stitched to keep everything from moving. The bias binding on the mitt is hand-sewn cause the machine didn't like taking all those layers.

My husband did the design on the apron (he has more experience and I can't always get it right  Embarrassed) which is just reversed for the back. I did do the mitt design and painted them both. The design is only on one side of the mitt so it doesn't get burned when you use it.

I like how it turned out and it is very masculine without needing a picture of boobs  Shocked.

Comments welcome

Excellent work! Very stylish and "clean". Did you use a stencil for the name?

Looks excellent - much better than 'kiss the cook' aprons.

Hi Tallberggoesint, no i didn't use a stencil. Just sketched the letters out in white pencil and drew over using fabric paint in the little bottles with a nozzle.

The whole set is painted by hand with the nozzle bottles. Gives a nice clean line if you can keep the flow even.
