Meet the Footers


Hi there I have been busy lately working on my foot cushion
'Footers' - I am working with Fred and Florry to help 
promote my new design.

Footers are my patented foot cushion that help alleviate pressure ulcers on your heels. This came about after a problem solving exercise for myself just over a year ago. 

Ideal for anyone who sits in the same position for any length of time ie the elderly. They have also successfully been used to alleviate pressure on the knee joint.

Interested? Then why not take a look in my Folksy shop.

Thank you for stopping by.

'I Love Moose'


Bright, Fun and Funky

I came upon the brilliant piece of printed fabric by Jangneus.
I just had to make something fun with it, so I appliqued an 'I love Moose' motif and produced this quirky tote bag. 
Silver metal eyelets and swivel clasps marry together the fabulous bright orange plaited handles.
You can now find it #newonfolksy

Thanks for looking

I Love Crafting.

Today while sitting in front of the fire stuffed with cold feeling sorry for myself I started to contemplate what I would need to put into a picture that summed up Katrina Krafts.

I love the vibrancy of beads and the beauty you can make from them. I love felting and sculpting shapes and having fun with it.
I love sewing and making things from nothing. I love to crochet.

But most of all I just love making things and the pleasure is enormous when someone else loves it too.
Yes selling things are a bonus, but you have to enjoy what you do.

Victorian Style Sewing Casket




















I adore old books and while recently looking through an sewing book I came across the pattern for this Victorian Style Sewing Casket. I fell in love with it and this is my version.

I loved learning the new skill of 'Tassle' making.

These two beauties are now in my folksy shop and they come with  all the accessories.

Thank you for looking.
