So, I've got a couple of things to share with you. First of all, I was thrilled to be asked by Ruth, the editor of The World Of Cross Stitching, to write a piece for their website. How could I say no?!!!She wanted me to write about the acronyms of stitching, you know these strange terms that we use but any non-stitcher would be totally confused about, and probably wondering if we were up to no good! You can read my post here. Just don't laugh at my photograph, I hate having my picture taken!
And here, is the final project using the chef alphabet!
I added the little chef letter to a wooden stick and added a black and white checked ribbon to match the little chef's apron...how cute is that?!!
To make it specific for a Father's day gift I added the 'Dad' stitching, and hey - presto, an instant male gift!
The great thing about this alphabet is that it's suitable for male and female chefs (or wanna be chefs!) For Mum, if she doesn't like barbequeing, just fill the bucket with baking/cookie making supplies! This would also be fantastic for getting kids interested in cooking or baking. They would love having their own baking supplies and would be able to carry everything in their own little bucket!
And of course, no chef (big or small!) would ever dream of working without their apron.....
Of course, you could stitch anything onto the apron, a name, a title, 'head chef' etc. the possibilities are endless.
The chef alphabet can be found on my website here.
I hope you've enjoyed these little chefs as much as I have!
Until next time...happy stitching!
