Apron and bandanna set

Added Feb 4, 2009

Tokyo, Japan






I use leftover fabrics from other projects to make this set of apron and bandanna for my son’s cooking class at school.

The apron bands are attached by a pair of buttons on the side to make putting it on easier. The letters on the apron are made of red felt with adhesive backing. I print some letters on paper, attached them upside down to the backing of the red felt and cut it out. Then I peeled off the backing and just stick and iron the letters on the apron.

The bandanna uses elastic on the back so it doesn’t need to be tied either. I also made a small bag in coordinating fabric to carry the apron and bandanna. As usual, my son wants his helmet beetles (kabuto-mushi) everywhere, so there’s one on the apron, one on the bandanna, and one on the bag.

Material Notes

linen, denim

    Wow, this looks great, my son would love one of these sets. I love the fabric combination you’ve used, and the button at the sides are perfect for little fingers.

    Fantastic idea. My 4 year old is mad on cooking and keeps telling everyone she is the chef of the house and has been nagging for a chefs hat!!! I think I might have to have a go at something like this for her!

    This is the cutest outfit ever! Would you sell something like this? My cousin’s son is turning three next year, he loves cooking and would love this outfit, I’m sure.
