About Me

My photo
My name's Alison but for reasons too long to go into I'm known as Cockney Blonde or CB for short. I've been rubber stamping for several years but now spend most of my time either knitting or crocheting. However, with the advent of a New Year I have bitten the bullet and am tackling my usually hated pastime of sewing. I've even bought 'Sewing for Dummies' to guide me on my way. I've been with my hubby Dave for 24 years and between us we have 4 kids and 5 grandkids. We also have 2 cats and a dog, the latter features as my 'photo' image. I used to be able to blog daily but these days I struggle to blog weekly. Hopefully now we are settled into our new home in the country, I can get back to a daily (well almost) update from the room I now have to share with hubby. No more personal crafting space for me!!! Thanks to all the blogs and sites I follow for all your brilliant inspiration, and thank you to everyone who finds the time to comment on my blog.

Another playmat for baby

Well, according to Sewmag this playmat could be achieved in an evening......

I don't think so. Several evenings more like. But then I am a beginnner. I just wanted to challenge myself to making a round playmat and this looked rather cute in the magazine. Me thinks I'll stick to the square ones in future.
In some of the petals I put a piece of scrunchy bag. You know the sort that contains your breakfast cereal inside the box. It makes a fab noise when you squeeze the petals. All the petals had some toy filling in to puff them out. The inside of the circle had a circular piece of approx 1/4" batting.
I then backed it with an old cotton sheet that I'm slowly demolishing.

Really pleased with the end result, but as I say, I'll stick to square ones in future. I already have fabric to make another.

Hope you like it, x
