November 3, 2011

The postman knocked at the door, I opened the parcel to find…

A pink bag

My Carrie’s Crafts items all wrapped up, almost to nicely to rip open with anticipation of what was inside…

About Carrie’s Crafts:
(Taken from Carrie’s Crafts website)

‘Carrie’s crafts started out of pure necessity when my first child was born. Dismayed and disappointed at the fabric range of store bought dribble bibs (not to mention the price!) I set about making my own.
Friends bought them, then friends of friends and before I knew it I had a few stockists and new customers as well as old ones coming back for more. I even won an award for ‘Best Newcomer’ on a popular parenting forum.
3 years and one more child later my range of children’s crafts has grown to include many different items. All of my blankets can be personalised with a child’s name as can the hooded towels, aprons, bags for that truly personal touch.
I also make a range of ‘Rib-its’ ribbon sensory blankets, hand painted/appliquéd children’s vests and t-shirts and stylish changing mats and reusable wipes.
99% of the fabrics I use are designer quilting fabrics from the likes of Amy Butler, Cath Kidston, Robert Kaufman and Michael Miller. All work is finished to the highest standard…my reviews speak for themselves!’

The bandana’s come with a fleecy lining which is both absorbent and comfortable to wear against babies skin. With two poppers on one side, it allows you to adjust as necessary
As you can see Tigger loved wearing the bandana and looked so cute

Bandana’s are available to buy from the website or Facebook for only £4.50 each or a multibuy deal of 3x bandana’s for £11.00. There are many different designs to choose from and would make lovely gifts.
Crayon Roll

Roo received a crayon roll, available in many different patterns (we had the apple & pears design). The roll is very compact when rolled up and could easily be stored in your bag or the side pocket in the car. Once opened it reveals the crayons that are stored securely and are easy for little fingers to get out and put away.
You can buy the crayon roll for £7.00 from the website or via Facebook and would make great stocking fillers or party gifts.
Time for a GIVEAWAY:
Carrie has very kindly allowed me to giveaway the gorgeous red reindeer bandana
