Easy 5 Minute Chef's Hat and Apron for Barbie

This one's near and dear to my heart folks! Barbie likes to spend time in the kitchen too... So let's whip up a super simple 5 Minute Chef's Hat and Apron! I've had a little ruffle remnant for years, it's about 2 1/2" wide and was perfect for this quick project! The neat thing about this ruffle is, it really doesn't fray. It also comes in other colors so that could be fun too.

  I decided to use velcro instead of ties for the apron.

Lovin' the cute top of the hat!

The ruffle I used... 

For the Hat:
  1. Cut a piece of ruffle 5" long. 
  2. Putting the right sides of the material together, sew a 1/4" seam along the cut edges, back stitching both ends. 
  3. While still inside out, run a hand sewn gathering stitch (about every 1/4") along the very top of the hat (actually the bottom of the ruffle). Gather and tie a knot.
  4. Turn hat to the right side and "puff" it out-done!
For the Apron:
  1. Cut a piece of ruffle 5" long.
  2. About 1" from each edge, cut the ruffle fabric up to the waistband, but don't cut the waistband. Then carefully trim off that fabric so it looks like an apron instead of a skirt.
  3. Sew a piece of velcro to each side of the waistband for closure-done!
  4. Option: You could sew a ribbon into the waist band if you'd like a tie closure.

Now Barbie's ready to do some holiday baking!
Someone please get her a chocolate chip cookie, gotta fatten that girl up a bit...

  14. This is adorable, Lynn! I have my daughter's Barbie dolls here for my granddaughter. She's only 3 so she's not playing with them too much yet, but I'm going to pin this post so I can come back to it and make this for her. I even have this ruffle and some scraps of it! Great idea!
