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.

It's a Dog's Life!!

Finally have found some time to blog!! Have been doing really busy things behind the scenes on Pinterest - and even found time to update my own boards!! For anyone that would like to follow me I am Papercraft By Carole - but you for loads more inspiration, follow the Crafter's Companion board too!

Anyway - way back at the end of April, we picked up our puppy Molly. And I did manage to fit in a bit of sewing before she arrived. I made a quilted bed liner using some gorgeous cotton from my local fabric shop, and white supersoft fleece.
The blanket is also supersoft fleece. Never worked with this before - my word is there a lot fluff when you cut it!!

Anyway, although this is all quite straightforward, it was the first time I made and used my own binding. Was quite a process as I made two of the bed liners and two blankets, so needed about 10m!! Am seriously considering investing in one of those bias binder maker things.

Molly seems to like it to chew on - and it's always good fun to empty everything out of the bed for me to put back in again!!
Back soon (hopefully)!!
