Beret and tartan flower collection

For A/W20 I have created a collection of decorated berets that combines my interests in fabric and design, regional textile history as well as the repurposing of fabrics. So for this blog post, I thought I would write a little about the design concept behind my new winter collection of wool felt berets that I finished with Lochcarron Scotland tartan handmade flowers and petersham bows.

This is me

Hi everyone.

I have been knitting and crocheting since I was about five years old, which is an awfully long time! My dear Mum taught me well and I have never lost the bug. I have quite a few crafty ‘hats’ in the knitting and crochet world – a tech editor, a workshop trainer, a book editor and a designer.

On TBCH I am selling my crochet bag kits, which include a pattern booklet giving full instructions, including describing the mosaic crochet technique where used, using written instructions, photo tutorials and charts – so each one is a great way to learn the technique.

Other items included are full balls of cotton worsted weight yarn (such as Lion Brand 24/7 Cotton), stitch markers, a crochet hook with a comfortable handle, a tapestry needle, fabric lining and where needed also included is a zip or button, reinforcing mesh, snap fasteners, craft wire and/or cord to stabilise the handles.

I am also open to commissions so feel free to contact me at [email protected] or @ccolwooldesigns on Instagram and Facebook. Happy crafting !

Hey, thanks for checking out my blog! I’m Caroline. This introductory post is to expand on all things Re- Energize You and answer a few questions…

What is energy? Why do we need to re-Energize?

How can Energy Stones help me?

Essentially, we are all energy- from our thoughts to the sound of our heartbeat… the frequency is what denotes how well we are feeling. You’ve probably used such phrases as feeling low, or being on a high, what you are essentially talking about is what vibration you are resonating at. Maintaining a higher frequency keeps your mental, physical, emotional and spiritual body on point and ultimately is what we mean by optimum wellness.

About 3 years ago we invested in a large powerful printer and cutting equipment so we could make long tri-folded concertina wedding invitations. These have been a huge success! I think our customers have liked having everything on one piece. I think they also like having a lot of space for maps and information.

As a child I really loved the Jolly Postman books. Do you know the ones I mean with things to fold out and envelopes with lettters inside? For a couple of years I’ve been trying to find a way of recreating them as wedding invitations. After months and months of testing I’ve finally come up with folded wedding posters that have an rsvp card attached to the inside. 

As far as I can tell these posters are unique to Paper Willow. We are so proud of them! We think they look nice when tied with a tag. Because they are A3 it means we have lots of space for a big map and other graphics like illustrated timelines.

I hope you like them! I’m going to design lots more of them this year!
