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.

2018 - Still Sewing!

Belated Happy New Year!

Gee wizz, I'm not too sure where the year went, especially the latter part of it.
Moving house and Christmas seemed to take care of that!

However, I managed to sew up a few Christmas pressies for family members (see below) which were received graciously!

So far this year sewing has alluded me, but have made a chookie pin cushion and first ever lightweight tote for carrying sewing gear or other things in ... think I'm hooked and can see more being made in the future to give away!

My Fav Fabric Store Plug!

In the hectic real world, I got to pay a visit to my favorite fabric store and friendly staff of:
From there I collected more FQ's (stash) and yardage for future projects. 
 East Coast Fabrics is one of the best places to go if you are looking for wonderful 100% cotton fabric, rayons etc all at good quality prices.

You can order some fabrics online, but most of it is in store because they sell out very quickly.

BUT - The lovely friendly staff will help if you wish to request a phone order ... Just ring them!

Another tote done and dusted, plus a peak at something else I'm working on ... My own creation lol!
I hope everyone has a wonderful year AND ...

Happy Creating!
