What are Sassy Caps?
Sassy Caps can be knit, crocheted, or sewn, but they need to feel soft against bare skin – nothing itchy or irritating.
Sassy Caps are NOT boring. They are in bright, fun colors or patterns with a little bit of flair. Neutral colors are ok if you add a fun accent (like animal print, feathers, or sparkle) to jazz it up and make it sassy.
Sassy Caps are handmade and donated to friends, family, and treatment centers to brighten the day of people undergoing cancer treatment.
You can make a Sassy Cap any way you like and give it anywhere in the world as long as it fits these three criteria

A message from Sassy’s 2 girls
This is Sassy, our mom. Actually, she was born Sheila Braniff, but her grandkids call her Sassy, and the name fits. We miss her every day. Sheila was a gifted teacher and a loving mother who could laugh at herself and see the best in others. We started this project to honor her and all of the people who went out of their way to show her that they loved her when she was sick – those who wrote cards, or brought meals, or made her laugh that wonderful laugh. Mom’s favorite hymn says, “Because I have been given much, I too must give.” We have such gratitude for the blessing and guiding influence she has been in our lives. We were truly “given much” in the mother department, and started Sassy Caps to follow her example of giving.
