“Make it so” – Baby Chef outfit for Buddy

Sometimes you just have to drop everything and do a rush job for someone.

A call last thursday lunchtime: the producer from the BBCs The One Show asking if I could make a scaled down version of a chef’s outfit which they could present to Jamie Oliver on the show on the following Monday.

(Jamie’s little boy was born about a month ago and is called Buddy)

“Sure, no problem” my response!
No time to source fabrics, get badges made up etc. Fortunately I happen to have a half metre of chef’s check fabric in a box somewhere and there is always a trip to Mothercare to get a 3 pack of baby grows to cannibalize for the parts.

I spent my weekend, plotting my pattern, cutting and stitching, plus a little time on Photoshop for the name badge… and voila! Monday morning a little chef babygrow complete with a cheft’s hat, and the name tag “Buddy” printed and applied to the outfit.

At 7pm it was presented to Jamie Oliver on the show and I was chuffed with it all….

so now back to the other jobs that have to happen – make it sew
