I am a huge fan of Cooking Mama so I insanely decided to sew together hundreds of 1 inch by 1 inch squares to enter in the challenge. While it came out really cute it was an insane amount of little squares.



I started out by drawing Mamas face and then I placed a grid over it and began adjusting her facial dimensions to give her a pixilated look.



She has a total of 900 squares (if my math is correct) cut out with a rotary cutter and cutting board.



Then I began laying out the rows or squares and sewing them together. After many many hours the top of the apron was finally done.



Then I improvised an apron pattern (AKA: I winged it). I added a pocket to the bottom and painted on Mamas favorite phrase Dont worry - Mama will fix it.





I love how it turned out even though its far from perfect. Hope you enjoy!

P.S. A special thanks to my best friend Aimee for listening to me complain about the never ending number of squares that had to be sewn together to make the top!

Very intense! I'm not sure I'd want to use it in the kitchen given how much work that was (and how messy I am in the kitchen!).

Did the blocks start out at 1" x 1" ? What are they finished? 1/2"

Once upon a time these were 1 inch squares but after sewing there smaller than 1/2 inch (little bigger than 1/4 or an inch actually). And I dont think I would ever use it for any real cooking because I would be so mad if I got it dirty now after all that. But it looks cute.
