About Me

My photo
I'm a part-time primary school teacher, who started papercrafting 8 years ago, when I had a fancy to make my own Christmas cards. Since then, I have tried all sorts of techniques and styles - and I kind of like them all. So my work is very varied, which keeps me interested - and my crafty stash growing!! As well as cards, I love working with boxes and canvases - and I'm always seeking inspiration for new projects.

Back to the Sneaky Peeks - No. 5!!!

So, after yesterday's break - I'm back with another Sneak Peek at the Crafter's Companion Camden Town Male CD. Can't believe there's only 2 more days until the launch on Create and Craft. Today's project is a little different as it's not a papercrafting project at all. For this one I have done a little bit of sewing!!
One of the parts I love about the new CD's are the Fabric Companions. I really fancied making some bunting  - with a difference!! This is not your usual girly bunting!! This is one for the boys - with an abundance of camouflage material!! 

The image from the CD was printed (three times) onto Iron On Transfer Sheets, and adhered to plain white cotton. Because the image was rectangular I decided to mix up the usual triangular shape with rectangles, and alternate them down the bunting.  Each piece is backed with more camouflage material.
And because I am a lazy sewer and can't be faffed with hand-stitching the binding on, I used a decorative stitch on my sewing machine in a contrasting thread, and made it a feature!!

So, tomorrow I will be back with my last sneaky peek - and on Thursday I will be glued to the TV watching Dawn Wheeler on the One Day Special on Create and Craft!! 

Take care,
