It’s no secret that I’m not a huge fan of buying things that people don’t need. So when it comes to presents, I have to put a lot of thought into it. Is the purchase ethical, do they need it and how can I make it special? And the Arty apple bespoke, handmade, personalised products tick all the boxes.
About Arty apple
The Arty apple brand was established by Amy, an incredibly talented mum with a passion for creating beautiful, bespoke items for her own children. Amy’s focus is on quality, affordability and the personal touch that comes with each item being specially made for the child who will receive it.
I love the variety of items that Amy sells. She has lots of products aimed at babies including bibs, blankets, comforters, hats and teddies. She also does wall art, bunting, hooded towels and aprons that are ideal for slightly older children. And possibly my favourite product is the Arty apple personalised Vizsla dog blanket. Amy explained why she made this in a fabulous interview over on Tatooed Mummy.
Arty apple personalised aprons
My children love to do crafts and bake. And when we’re finished, they see fabulous, colourful, sparkly creations and edible delights. And me? I see mess. On the table, chairs, floor, living room, dining room, kitchen and usually on the dog. Sadly, Arty apple don’t make personalised aprons for dogs. But they do make personalised aprons for children, and they were kind enough to make one each for Libby and Lia.
Arty apple make aprons for both boys and girls. And I love the fact that the girls personalised apron that Libby and Lia have been sent is blue. Hooray for companies that recognise that girls don’t have to be constantly in pink!
The design is fabulous, it does have pink on it but they make a real feature of the bright pink neck straps and the writing and picture in the same colour so they stand out. I just love the design of these and they fit both girls perfectly.
Putting the aprons to the test
Libby and Lia have both modelled their aprons and done some crafting with them on. But the real test came when Lia and I got out the chocolate. We decided to make some healthy Easter egg nests and used the chocolate recipe from this fabulous post from Eats Amazing.
Now, this chocolate is incredibly tasty and, believe it or not, it’s healthy too! But when a two year old is making it, it’s pretty messy. I’ll be sharing our Easter egg nests over the next few days and I’m pleased to say, the apron fared brilliantly. There was the usual level of mess all over the house, but Lia’s dress fared admirably with the apron to cover it. And what’s more, the apron is made of gorgeous, good quality denim so it washes easily and afterwards it’s as good as new.
