Hello, I’m Natalie. I’m the one trying to be Cathy McGowan in the picture below. Who do I think I’m fooling?!
I’m Ms CraftAGoGo and I was – well still am, really – a ”60s person’ (I wasn’t allowed to be a Mod) and I love the look of fashions and artefacts from that period, though I’m interested in anything that looks a bit lively, really.
I’ve been making stuff since forever. I crocheted all my mates, including my mate and her husband:
(I’ve actually got more crocheted mates than this – I just didn’t take pictures of them when they were finished).
Ultimately I did for the BBC homepage for the 2012 Royal Wedding:
As you’ll see, out of a 50-50 choice, I made the wrong decision about what Prince William would wear on the day. He wisely went for the red, instead of this one, which, to be fair, looks a bit like a postman’s outfit.
The nonsense hats my friend and I wore on the day:
…and my mate’s fox outfit.
You get the gist of it! I’ll make anything and everything…
Things recently changed though, in a big way…I’ve just discovered the Cricut Maker – an electronic cutting machine – and life will never be the same again!
You can do anything with it – but I’ve found a lot of the availability of files quite limiting…so I’m producing my own, and this site is where I share them all, along with other craft stuff and anything I learn on the way.
If you have any questions at all, about sewing – techniques, or vintage patterns, or fabrics or…maybe you want me to have a go at creating a vintage-style item that isn’t up here so far then please contact me and I’ll get onto it!
