Cute Aprons & Hampers
I have a selection of aprons to wear when I am cooking and baking. I don't always remember to pop one on and sometimes suffer the consequences.
I have a lovely floral apron that is past it's best really, it has a few bleach marks on it and a few splashes I haven't been able to get off completely. So this one has now been allocated the role of cleaning apron. I also have a cream coloured apron I tend to wear when I am baking and a new frilly apron that I was given for my birthday. I haven't even had that one on yet. My latest aquisition is a rather gorgeous dress-style apron from Buy Cute Aprons, a speciality site for aprons.
When Buy Cute Aprons offered me an apron I found it really hard to choose. There are so many to choose from and they are all a bit special. I eventually settled on what they call the Wrap Apron Victoria. What I like about the apron, is that it looks less like an apron and more like a dress. Of course, being a textile designer by trade I am a sucker for pretty patterned fabrics too. All in all I am really pleased with my choice.
I am really tempted to buy this Gruffalo Baking Set for Cooper. It has a yellow Gruffalo apron, cookie cutters, a recipe sheet, a rolling pin and a wooden spoon.
I know Cooper is still wee, but I like to get him into the kitchen. I pull up a chair so he can stand beside me at my island unit and help. He loves cutting out shapes in cookie dough, adding toppings to a pizza and loves to stir.
