Looking for the perfect crochet Father’s Day gift? How about a grilling apron featuring a crochet hamburger on the chest?!
Last week my friend Colleen guest posted 5 summer cookout-themed appliqués on my blog. My brain about exploded with all the different things you can do with these!
The hamburger and hotdog patterns were my favorite and thought they would go perfect on a grilling apron!
Father’s Day is right around the corner! This is a gift you can make in about an hour and something dad can actually use.
Here you will find all the links to what you need to make this super fast and fun crochet hamburger grilling apron.

Crochet Hamburger Pattern
H Crochet Hook
Yarn in the colors tan, red, green, brown and cream (very small amount of each)
Hot Glue Gun
The first thing I did was steam my apron. It’s a little difficult to steam canvas but I don’t have an iron handy so steamer it is.
Next, it’s time to make your applique. You can find all the instructions for the crochet hamburger applique here.
After you get all your pieces crocheted, with tails sewn in, it’s time to glue them to your felt sheet.
Start by gluing down the top bun and then each piece in order.
Be careful not to squish your pieces too close together, this will result in a smushed-looking burger.
I know because I made that mistake on my first attempt and had to make the whole thing all over again.
After all your pieces are glued, cut your crochet hamburger out. The goal is to make sure not felt is showing from the front.
Next, decide where you want your burger to go, then glue it down onto your apron.
Seriously how simple was that? You could probably make 10 of these in a day! I love how stinking fast they work up, but is still an unbelievably useful product!

I think the hotdog applique would also be super cute on an apron!
