Chefs in the Kitchen

This week is flying by...can I add another day please? Company's coming, laundry is still piled up and I have some birthday shopping still to do. My little princess is turning 5 this weekend and we're having her party on Saturday. We decided to do a cooking party - so we'll have 10 little girls making up pizzas and decorating jumbo cupcakes. Fun! Fortunately, we decided on this theme a month or so ago, so I've had plenty of time to make aprons and chef hats for the girls. Thank goodness I have that checked off my list! I used the tutorials from Stardust Shoes - and if you haven't checked this blog out, please do! Joanna has some super fun tutorials on here!

While I adore those quilt fabrics out there, I had to be a little more frugal with this project. I found a twin sheet set at Target for $15 and was able to cut out all of the apron fronts and hat tops from that. I lined just the top part of the apron with some pink poly/cotton (the sheets were poly/cotton too...minimal shrinking!) and had some extra Mary Englebreit fabric that was feeling a little lonely. Pockets and ties with that. So, I'm thinking I spent maybe $30 for 10 aprons and hats...not too bad and they get to take them home. Sure beats spending the money on the little trinkets that end up in the trash, don't you think?
Enjoy the rest of your week!


  1. This is a great party favor for the kids!

  2. Oh gosh! Take lots of photos. I loved those kid parties!
    The aprons are so much better than dad's shirts turned backwards!
