Crafted By Cassie Review and Giveaway Ends March 31!! **CLOSED**


Have you ever had trouble finding the perfect gift for a little boy? I know I sure have! I'm so used to having girl's around that when I had a son I didn't know where to even begin in finding him cute and safe play things. I was so lucky to have found Crafted by Cassie. She makes adorable hand made items that are great for little boys. Some are good for girls too but most aimed at boys.




My favorite item I've gotten to try out from her is her little Baking Buddy sets. Aprons and chef hats for little kids. They are especially safe because there is no tying of apron strings, it's all velcro! The hat is just like a little chef's hat with the puff on top. She customizes so if you give her an idea of what you are looking for she can try to find something to make you happy. My son LOVES race cars and so she was able to find a print in it that made both him and I super happy. He was so excited when he got his set. He announced himself as the 'best cooker in the world' and wore the set around the house for days and even to bed! His favorite activity now is cooking in the kitchen with mom. He pulls a chair up to the counter and is in charge of stirring. It's too cute.

He also received a cute little cape from Cassie that was velcro and he loves playing super hero with it. He kept turning his apron into a cape so we had to get him this item too. He likes to jump off the couch and tell us he is flying. The sewing on both items is awesome. Very good work and I've had no problems with the cape at all. My own fault when I washed the apron the first time I didn't velcro the waist strap and it caught in my washer and tore off. But awesome customer service jumped into play. When Cassie heard about it, she sent me a new strap free of charge!

Some other amazing items sold at Crafted by Cassie is her cute little fishing game. It's all safe and made with velcro. It's on my list of must get items since my son loves fishing but it scares me to hand him a real rod with a hook! She also makes great 'chalkboard' cards. At valentine's day she made little valentine cards with a piece of chalkboard fabric and a spot to stick a piece of chalk. A very unique idea. Right now you can buy the same type of cards only in the shape of an egg for Easter! Among my favorites that she sells are her roll up mats. Crayons and cars . The crayon one has spots to put crayons and then you can roll em up and not lose any of them. The car one is genius. You tuck a few matchbox cars in their slots and roll it up, but when it's unrolled it created a road for the cars to 'drive' on!

Cassie is a very 'green' mommy and makes a bunch of reuseable and handy items such as unpaper towels (with or without snaps) and cloth wipes. I have tried her wipes and the stiching is perfect. They are serged so have a great look to them too. She makes the wipes mostly from recycled flannel so it's soft and a great price! You can always find a great deal on her facebook page. And when she is not offering deals she is usually running some kind of fun auction.

Buy: Crafted By Cassie

Win: Set of 3 neutral fabric cloth wipes. One flannel/OBV, one flannel/flannel "new" and one flannel/flannel upcycled.

I visited her Etsy shop but there were no items listed for sale. The chef set in your review is awesome though; I'd love one!
