It's my nieces birthday tomarrow. She's turning 8 and loves to help mommy in the kitchen. So I put together a chef's apron and oven mitts for her. I used these two tuteshttp://thelongestyear.typepad.com/my_weblog/2007/03/oven_mitt_tutor.html and http://www.instructables.com/id/How_to_sew_an_adjustable_chefs_apron/
Both are great. The mitts are made with insul-bright batting. So she can use them for real. The apron is lined with the flower fabric because the material I used was thin. I used bias tape for the tie. I had a little trouble with the casing for the tie.  It kept twisting while I was trying to sew it on. So after the third round with the seam ripper, I scrapped the pieces all together. I ended up making two extra wide pieces of bias tape instead of using the curved pieces. My little guy is modeling because the birthday girl wasn't around.

great fabric and nice work on the oven mitts.  It's good to have mitts to fit the wee hands, even if they are just steading the pan while they scrap off cookies.

Thanks everyone. I'm making another one this week for my friends little girl. I made the size a little smaller. Toddler size. She's three. I plan on making two more toddler size, for my 2 and 3 year olds. These things are addictive. The mitts will only be for play.
