Saturday ReView: Oven Roasted Tomatoes with Garlic & Ken BBQ Apron from Potholder

These Oven Roasted Roma Tomatoes with Garlic turn out of season store bought tomatoes into a very nice meal folks! They are pretty easy and call for minimal ingredients. Equally as good with, or without, the fresh basil. As a matter of fact, tomatoes are on the shopping list for today:@) 

And Ken says it's grilling season...
I've mentioned before that I'm grateful for inspiration any time I can find it:@) I saw these cute seasonal potholders at Dollar Tree (two for $1) and thought the scale of the saying would work as a fun grilling apron for Ken. A few cuts, some ribbon from my craft stash and a little hot glue later... Wa-la, Ken was serving burgers for dinner!

The potholders I started with:
(And I did save the silver colored quilted back, just in case I think of something for that๐Ÿ˜Ž

What I did:
  1. Cut the front design off of the potholder.
  2. Folded it in half lengthwise with the saying in the center.
  3. Using the doll as a guide, cut bib shape, then flare sides out to go around the hips.
  4. Hot glue loop on top, make it big enough to slip over doll's head.
  5. Add ties, they can be long enough to actually tie behind the doll's back, or short and hot glue a little velcro to each end.
  6. Finally, border the whole apron with ribbon.

The finished apron:
A word about glue...
The ~fastest~ way to make these little aprons is with hot glue, no question.
The ~neatest~ way to make them, would be with Liquid Stitch. This would also give you more of a chance to bend the ribbon to follow the curves as necessary.

Ken says it's time to get your grilling game face on!!!

~Make something just for fun and have a happy day๐Ÿ˜‰


  1. Very cute! So Ken has a man bun now???

  2. Ken is ADORABLE! His apron is wonderful--you are so clever. And the MAN BUN!!! Barbie must be swooning! ;^)

  3. Oven roasted tomatoes are so tasty!! You are too clever with the apron, Lynn. That is funny with Ken having a man bun!
