Monster Chef’s Hat and Apron

May was a bit of a whirlwind. I was out of town twice (for the Tinkerbell 10K at Disneyland with my sister and some friends, and then to Monterey for a relaxing couple of days with my husband) and I threw a birthday party for my three year old daughter in between. For all these reasons and some previous procrastinating, the apron and chef's hat I had planned to make for her birthday was a belated gift. ;-)

I've made three sets of these before and I just love them. The pattern (links to patterns available on Making It Fun) is thorough and it's a well finished product. My son loves his Very Hungry Caterpillar set and my daughter is quite pleased to have her own. She was even willing to do a bit of wiggly modeling.

A little blurry, but I wanted to show how I tie the apron on the tiny child. The neck strap has an adjustable D ring, but if I cinched it up tight enough to keep the apron from nearly dragging on the floor it would be choking her. So, I put the waist straps through the neck loop before I tie them which keeps the apron up nicely. It will grow with her for many years. The hat has a velcro closure, so it will also fit for quite some time. Truth be told, it's a little big for her at the moment.

She was "over it" on the modeling so here's the other side of the reversible apron.
