Kitchenalia #1 - Pinnies

I can certainly be a messy baker.  Just ask my dad!  When I lived with my parents my dad would pull a face every time I announced I was going to bake.  Not that he didn't like the end result - he'd certainly demolish that, but because he knew only too well that the process of me making something delectable would result in the kitchen looking like a bomb site!

I'm not that much better now to be honest! Flour still gets on the floor and all over the oven.  But, my outfit doesn't get messy because of the pinny I wear (and the fact that I roll my sleeves up like a 5 year old!)

So, with that in mind, I thought I'd share with you a selection of pinnies / aprons. 

I like calling them pinnies.  I've no idea if that's a northern word with living in Yorkshire, or not.  You may like to leave a comment and enlighten me as to what you call your aprons.

Pinnies 1, 2, 3
1. Is a blue pinny from Pinny Girls.  Mr E bought me this for last Christmas, after I left a 'subtle' hint of leaving the advert in the paper open! Thankfully he took the hint because the pinny is gorgeous, really well made with a good quality cotton. And it arrived wrapped in tissue paper, folded beautifully in a box.  They're not cheap at £24.99, but will last years.

2.  Is  the red pinny with a lovely scalloped edge also from pinny girls.

3. For the little 'helpers' why not get them this gorgeous apron from the Apron Store (rather apt name me thinks!)  I particularly liked the sheep and cow motif on this.  Costs £8.95.

4.  I thought this personalised apron from Not on The High Street by Alice Palace was a brilliant idea as a gift for the keen cook.  There are loads of pinnies out there which have phrases on them, but why not make it specific. 

5.  Now, I had to include a pinny with a cat motif. It just wouldn't be right if I didn't! Being a cat lover! So, I picked this one, thought it was rather amusing. It's a cotton apron costing £16.00 from ulster weavers.  I was kindly bought an apron some years ago by Ulster Weavers and I can honestly say that it is really good quality.

6. Another from Ulster Weavers is this baking cotton apron also costing £16.00.  I thought it had a little understated sophistication.

So, do you use the word 'pinny'.  Or perhaps you call them something different again.
