A really lovely parcel arrived the other day. Inside a brightly coloured posting bag, was this box.
Simple but sturdy, and embossed with the Arty apple logo, I was really excited to open it up and check out what was inside.
I opened up the box, and unwrapped the tissue paper. And I was so happy with what I found.
Personalised aprons for Rhys and Nerys.
The aprons are made from indigo denim which feels like it’ll last a long time, but it still feels pretty soft and comfortable for them to wear. The neck and waist ties and lovely and vibrant, contrasting beautifully against the denim. The boys personalised aprons come with bright blue ties, and a gingerbread man picture. While the girls personalised aprons have pink ties and a cupcake. I’m sure there would be no issue at all though if your son wanted a cupcake, or your daughter wanted blue ties.
Rhys and Nerys were both thrilled with their aprons. I had to keep fending Nerys off so I could get some photos before she put hers on!
The aprons come in 2 sizes; 2-6 years and 7-13 years.
I asked for both of ours to be in the smaller size and am really happy with how well they fit both Rhys and Nerys. The neck tie is a little bit on the long side for Nerys, but we just twisted it up a bit after we put it on her. And I like the fact that she will grow into it, rather than worrying that it’ll get too small for her quite quickly.
I really love the fact that the details on the aprons are stitched on. Sometimes you see things like this and the name is printed, or ironed on and it just doesn’t look that great.
These on the other hand look lovely.
The stitching is perfect, and really stands out. Overall I’m just really impressed with the quality of these aprons.
After the children had posed for a few photos we decided we really needed to put the aprons to the test.
So we did a spot of baking.
We decided to step away from our usual fairy cakes and have a go at making some flapjacks.
I’m trying to let Nerys really get stuck in now when we bake together. Which meant there was golden syrup being drizzled everywhere and oats being played with (my fault really, for using oats in the past for sensory play!).
The apron did its job perfectly though. I was more relaxed knowing that Nerys’ clothes were protected, and it meant that she could wipe her oaty hands on it rather than on herself.
Look at that face! That is the face of a very happy little girl.
Nerys tried them the next day, and even put her apron back on to do it, so she didn’t drop crumbs down herself!
We absolutely love our aprons, and think they would make a really lovely gift for any children who like to help out in the kitchen.
In fact, all of the products from Arty apple are just gorgeous and would make lovely presents. Amy, the lady behind the sewing machine, makes a really lovely selection of items for babies and children. If you’re after something for a new baby then you should definitely go and check out the beautiful bunting and blankets that Amy has to offer.
There’s so much to choose from you’re bound to find the perfect present.
