Hi, my name is Carol and I am the name behind Carol's Needlecraft and, more recently, The Huggies. At the beginning of 2020, just before the pandemic hit, I decided I wanted to learn to craft. I started with resin and then moved on to decoupage before eventually settling on Sewing and Carols Needlecraft was created. Now you have to understand that I hadn’t used a sewing machine for over 40 years, so where this thought came from, I have no idea but I thoroughly enjoy using one. I started making small quilted items such as makeup bags, pot holders and kiddies messenger bags. Towards the end of 202I, I was looking for another new sewing challenge and made the decision that I wanted to make Soft toys. I soon discovered this wasn’t relatively as straightforward as I thought. It’s not just a case of buying some fabric and some stuffing ....no they have been tested to meet UKCA standards. After a lot of reading and searching for compliant fabrics, threads and stuffing etc, I made up my first two dolls started the testing process. It was not a pleasant feeling hanging the poor little things from their ears and legs with a 9.5-kilo weight and as for setting fire to them....don’t ask! But they passed with flying colours, all the seams held and they self-extinguished when approached with a flame. I felt very proud. The Huggies were born!
