About Cherry Boo Crafts

Welcome to my small blog on the internet where I hope to share different sewing, knitting and other crafts not only things I've done, but also to share links to other lovely crafty, creative websites out there you can get ideas from for your next craft creations.

Since I can remember I've always loved creating things, but recently took up sewing!

After 42yrs of marriage and the sudden loss of my husband in 2013, I had been struggling and found the need to do something to distract myself from the horrific saddness that engulfed me.

As fate would have it, early in 2015, I inherited an older Elna sewing machine and havn't looked back since managing to master some basics of using it even though I had used a sewing machine before. That was many years ago at high school and back then they were older Singer sewing machines. Wow! have they all come a long way since then.

Internet searchs have begun ... what do I make/create?

How much material do I need, what type of material?

What kind of sewing/craft utensils do I need?
Oh the list goes on ... !

I cannot believe how many different basic, quick, easy and wonderful things there are out on the internet to find and make ... GOOGLE and YOUTUBE are godsends :)

I have always knitted, so am not new to that and since my own children are all grown up and married with children, nieces/nephews are now having new bubs, I have many grandies/great nieces/nephews to still knit and now sew things for.

Everything I create, I give away, so I call them my 'Giveaways' ... lol!

Anyway, I hope you enjoy looking through the site, and sorry my photo's are not the best,(click on them to see the fuller versions), but at least they give you an idea on what can be done especially if you are new to sewing as I am.

Sewing With .... Singer!

Im back again to fill you in on trialing out the new sewing machine, which I have to add, has not disappointed me to date. So far, I've managed to master most things on it by reading the booklet that came with it and checking the LD display to make sure things set correctly before sewing any projects.

I've found the machine a breeze, with the exception of the automatic threader though!!!!

That I have NOT managed to master and still resort to threading the needle the old way which is quicker for me to do with glasses (oh yeah! I wear glasses by the way), off because I'm short sighted lol!

I produced the Garment Suit Cover for a friend and a makeup purse - (see pics posted below).

With Christmas coming up fast and a few birthdays before then I guess more things will be in the sewing pipeline!

Happy Creating!
