The aprons are darling and will delight my granddaughters! I made one in candy corn fabric and one in jelly bean fabric. I simplified the oven mitts. I just cut out mitts in felt and sewed diagonal lines every 1/4 " to look "quilted." I bound the top edges and made a loop with bias tape, as in the pattern, and then sewed around the mitt edges. They look quilted and were much easier to make. (And the dolls won't actually use them in a hot oven!)
Really cute pattern
The Flossie Potter Pattern was really simple. Looked really cute on my granddaughter's doll. She used the oven mitts for mittens for her doll to use when skating (go figure). I plan to make another for her other 18"doll and an apron for her so they can all cook together! I did have to take the mitts in a little but that wasn't a problem. I used quilted material for the mitts and they look like the real thing.
The Flossie Potter Pattern goes together quickly and is adorable. I made cookie pans of silver card stock and scored the edges to turn up, then glued mini ornament/cookies. The pattern gives lots of room for creativity in holiday, retro or everyday looks for the apron. The mitt is adorable--however, it suggests using felt and quilting it every 1/8 " which is time consuming. The final look is perfect, however. I will make this again, but perhaps try a pre-quilted scrap for the mitt.
