I am a woman that loves to be in her kitchen. I am not one that dreads the thought of cooking food...to me food is a way that I express my love to my family. A meal that is prepared with love and sincerity is a great way to say...
Don't you agree. I know for a fact that I owe this love to my Moma. When I was growing up, I was always right there beside her in the kitchen. Her own little Seux Chef.
My chair was placed as close to her side as possible so that I could watch her every move. I guess her passion rubbed off on me just a tad.
Now I have two little girls and even though they're only 6 months, I'm looking forward to passing on this love for cooking to them.
Well...a good cook can't be in the kitchen without a stylish apron to guard her from all the spitters and spatters of all the yummy foods...right?
I've always been told, a dirty apron is a tell tell sign of a good cook.
So, when I was going through my clothes the other day, I came across my old khaki pants.
I think they're like 4 sizes too big for me now..totally loving it!!!
I figured, what does a little seux chef need?
Her own apron of course!!!
I got busy busy!!!
I took my scissors and cut them off right above where my knee would be if I was wearing them.
Before I unfolded a single leg, I cut out, I guess, a little scoop? This way, when you open it up
Wa-LA!! You have an apron...or what will be an apron.
Next, I picked out my fabric that I wanted to accent the apron with.
I think little girls deserve hot pink polka dots...how bout you?
And..I'm going to go ahead an apologize for the horrible picture quality.
I was forced to use my phone's camera because...yes..I forgot to charge my camera's battery. Should I add that to my fail list for this week? I'm thinkin' about it...
Back to the apron...
This is pink polka dots in fact.
I cut out a double strip so that I would have enough for both sides. I decided that I wanted the apron to have a frayed look so...when I started sewing I left the edges raw and sewed the stitch leaving 1/4 inch to fray.
Savannah was all into the pink...she can't wait to wear her new apron...soon enough.
For the pockets...I picked two coordinating patterns. They have to be different yet similar....you know how little girls can be. I'm trying to prevent future temper tantrums mmm k?
You see the butterflies? I decided to cut a few out for a little accent touch up top.
Have a great Monday!!!
