How did you find CO+K and why did you join?

I found CO+K one summer holiday a few years back, when I was bored. I had just been taught to sew in the classes at school, and I wanted something creative to do, so I searched through the internet of things to make. I think the first project I saw was this roll-up pencil case: http://www.cutoutandkeep.net/projects/pencil_case_roll_up_2

I visited the site several times before I actually had the initiative to sign up to it...!
I joined the site because I saw that there were quite a few good projects and I liked the tutorials - but I never thought that I would ever get round to making my own tutorials!


What projects are you currently working on?

At the moment, I'm making a dress for myself out of black fabric with white swallows all over it. I'm also making another school bag for my sister out of patisserie-style material (because she likes baking). Hopefully I'll post them both here soon.

What does your craft space look like?

My craft space usually spreads to the dining room, and the lounge and sometimes my bedroom!


Which tool or craft supply do you use the most?

I definitely use my sewing machines the most. I don't know what I would do if they broke!! I use the iron a lot as well, because I prefer pressing fabric rather than pinning it.


What do you craft along to?

I usually listen to the radio while I'm crafting. I never watch TV because I never get anything done!

Favorite Craft

I enjoy sewing the most (especially now as I have got an old fashioned Singer sewing machine as well as my electric one), and I like making roll up pencil cases and new skirts for myself.

Steph's Top Crafts

If you could learn one new craft or make anything, what would it be?

I'd LOVE to make myself a corset, but they seem so scary to make! So many steps...
Hmm, that's a hard question...I think I'd like to learn knitting and woodwork one day.


Who are your crafting heroes?

Hmm...well, my Textiles teacher has inspired me a lot to take a career in Textiles later on, and Cat Morley (!) as well, because the one of the first projects I made was your roll up pencil case :D My Grandma helps me with my sewing sometimes as well, and she makes all her own clothes, so she inspires me too.
