GIVEAWAY and Review: Creative Cat Crochet

Isn't my little boy in his handmade custom ordered shark mittens just adorable?!?!?!?

I bet you are wondering how you can get your own pair of these mittens or perhaps you have some other custom idea in mind. Well, then you need to check out Creative Cat Crochet.



Creative Cat Crochet specializes in creating unique and customized items. The owner's name is Cheri and she is a whiz at coming up with her own designs and patterns. She can just look at something and can come up with her plan of how to create her wonderfully beautiful  and creative items.

When she approached me about doing this review and giveaway for her she asked me what I would like for her to make me to review. I had seen some shark mittens that I thought were adorable and asked her if she could make some shark mittens for my son who needed some new mittens this season (darn kids keep growing out of their clothes so fast!) These were what she surprised me with.

The picture (below) of my daughter in the crocheted crown is another example of how she just comes up with her own designs and creates! I had never seen a crocheted crown before (she made these a couple years ago already) and asked her if she could make one and she made one for both of my kids using her own designs.

I joke that she has a yarn obsession, but as her customer you will be glad for it because she has a supply of almost any shade of any color in many different yarn varieties. And if she doesn't have it (which I would find hard to believe), you better believe that she will get it for your custom order.



I am so happy to have such a wonderful friend who loves to crochet items and share her talents. These shark mittens are not the only items I have received from her. She has also made these adorable crocheted dress-up crowns (see the picture to the right for a picture of my daughter in her crown) for both of my kids (girl colors for my daughter and boys colors for my son) and this wonderful hat  (Cheri is pictured wearing it in the photo on her FB page) for my daughter. And you also do not want to miss Creative Cat - Photography Props!!!

If I won $25 to spend with Creative Cat I'd probably tell her to surprise me with a newborn boy hat.

Kelly Gentz Photography said...

My favorite Creative Cat item - hmmm...that's hard. I'd maybe say her lion hat or one of her first hats - the teal/red hat her cat wore. :)

Jaimi Verhey said...

OMG, I love her stuff! I have a hat and a scarf, my son has a hat and now I need another scarf and maybe a hat for my teenager.

I already have an aviator had custom made by her, I fell in love with the quality of it, I have her now working on a new custom hat that most people won't even attempt. She is amazing!!! If I won, I'd have a heart attack, I'd have something made for my daughter =^..^=

I might buy my bestie a newborn hat for her baby. Or maybe treat myself to a slouch hat. Hmm. Decisions decisions.
