Little Helper Apron Set

Little Helper Apron Set

Welcome to the Holiday Blogstravaganza; your one stop shop for holiday inspiration! Each week we’ll show you our projects from crafts and DIY to fashion and recipes. You can visit this weeks Blogstravaganza links at the bottom of this post:)

My contribution this week is a Little Helper apron set. Now that it’s cooler, it’s time to get in that kitchen and bake. (Or if you’re me, just light a candle that makes it smell like you baked.)

The point is, the kids are going to be cooped up in the house more with chilly weather and shorter days. Why not get them involved in the kitchen?

My daughter has been helping me prepare Thanksgiving dinner for years. This year we’re recruiting my niece, who is modeling her apron, chef hat, and oven mitt for us today. My hope is that one day, I can pawn the job completely off on them.

I used McCalls 6049 to make Sofia’s Little Helper Apron set. I had to adjust the apron a little to make it small enough; and I took quite a bit from the hat band as well. I self drafted the oven mitt; the pattern was way too big for her. It’s sized for bigger girls, maybe 4 and up.

There are tons of free apron patterns and sets on the web. Here are my top picks so you can make a Little Helper Apron set too!

You can get the free Mini Me Apron Set from Living With Punks. It has a pattern for the hat, oven mitt, and apron. This one will work for a boy if you change or omit the pockets.

If you want a girly matching mommy daughter Little Helper Apron set, download the Child & Adult Chef Hat Pattern from YouCanMakeThis, and the Mother Daughter Apron Pattern from Craftsy. (Also free.)

Hello. I'm Amy and I'm addicted to sewing. I borderline-hoard fabric, buttons, & patterns. Sometimes I wish I could pile my fabric up on the floor and just roll in it!

    Love your little baker’s set!!!! You are so smart for planning ahead and teaching the girls to cook!!! My girls love to help in the kitchen but I never considered the long term advantages to teaching them young :).

    Perhaps all I need in the kitchen is a candle with the aroma of roast chicken, then I could wear a cute chef’s set. Well, maybe I wouldn’t look quite so cute. Have fun cooking with your helpers!

    SO cute, the apron set and Sofie! Pink, purple, lace and bow…I am sure Sofie approved it with joy!
    Thank you for the links to the patterns! I have been meaning to make an apron and the chef hat for my daughter too, and those will help!
