one of Milo's main christmas gifts was a little kitchen unit. It's super special because it was handmade by one of our friends for his son and it's perfect for my boy who loves to help in the kitchen.
To accompany the kitchen we got Milo some of these lovely wooden slicing fruits and just 2 days before christmas I decided to stitch him up an apron, hat and oven mitt!
I used (though really I should say that I glanced at for inspiration) these patterns for the hat and the apron. I really must reiterate that I didn't actually use this pattern, if I had I'm sure it would have turned out a whole lot better, the hat at least I'm sure, I only used it for inspiration. I wouldn't want you thinking badly of the pattern, because of my bad workmanship!
The oven mitt I made all from my head! I might try and post a small tutorial here at some point in the future if I make any more.
Most of the fabric I already had stashed away, the lovely kawaii fabric came from mine and my Mum's etsy shop, and the blue ribbon actually came from my step brothers wedding cake. I suddenly realised this in the midst of stitching it in to the apron!
I wasn't sure at first whether he would actually like dressing up in these bits, but I'm pleased to say he loves it! Watching put his little had in the mitt, declare 'hot' and then open his play oven, makes my heart swell!
