I take a lot of photographs of all sorts of things, including my makes, my students’ makes, crafty moments and details from everyday life, especially floral portraits, light and shadow, glorious colours and found patterns.  To see more of my own and my students’ work, please visit my Pinterest page.

Day 5 of #marchmeetthemaker and this is my newest paper cut. It’s for my cousin’s lovely daughter who is a super talented baker. #papercutting #newestmake #handmade #lettering #fairycake #bakinglove #logo #graphicdesigner #scalpel #christinegreencrafts #craftingatthecottage

It’s #worldbookday and day 4 of #marchmeetthemaker with the prompt ‘On Your Desk’. I don’t have a desk dedicated to my projects, I use the dining room table, kitchen table and office desk depending on what I am doing. But if I had a desk these books would be very close by. All books that I find inspirational and enjoy dipping in to. #thehouseatpoohcorner would be my #desertislanddiscs book. #deansbookoffairytales is a treasure from my childhood, the illustrations are so beautiful #thisishistoricbritain by #sasek us also from my childhood and reminds me of my dad #americanquilts is a visual feast of quilts #maryfeddon is one of my favourite artists #ndebele I bought this many years ago and continue to be inspired #mikeanddougstarn brothers who work together producing extraordinary photographic installations #ravilious a firm favourite of mine #dufy needs no introduction or explanation, endlessly joyful #thequiltsofgeesbend my go to patchworking bible #christinegreencrafts #craftingatthecottage #books #bookseverywhere #pileofbooks

Day three of #marchmeetthemaker and it’s ‘Beliefs and Values’. I really do believe that given the right encouragement anyone can find their creative streak and this pic shows what total new comers to papercutting achieved in a few hours. I love sharing my skills and knowledge with my students and watching them flourish. It’s a privilege. I do what I love and love what I do! (Mostly!!) #marchmeetthemaker #beliefsandvalues #teaching #sharingknowledge #sharingskills #loveteaching #mycraftylife #learnsomethingnew #papercutting #lettering #handmade #christinegreencrafts #craftingatthecottage

Day two of #marchmeetthemaker and it’s ’Style’. Because I have a few strings to my bow I find this really hard to define. The thread that runs through everything I do is, I hope uniquely my style. Whether it’s patchwork, needlepoint, lettering, papercutting and sometimes these disciplines cross over each other and create something extra stylish. #patchwork #papercutting #needlepoint #needlepointersofinstagram #craft #independentbusiness #smallbusiness #onewomanbusiness #allmyownwork #meetthemaker #lovewhatido #christinegreencrafts #craftingatthecottage #style #mixingitup

It’s day one of #marchmeetthemaker set up by @joannehawker and the theme is Brand Introduction. I am Christine Green and I design and craft at my cottage. A graphic designer by trade, I am a self taught paper cutter and patchworker. I love teaching and passing my enthusiasm on to my students and during lockdown I have been giving talks and workshops via Zoom which has pushed my technological boundaries. I have a website with an online shop where I sell items that feature my typographic designs and patterns to make some of my textile projects. I consider myself very lucky and love what I do.

Putting together examples for Friday’s Boro inspired project @ardingtoncrafts. Looking forward to running this new workshop #boroinspired #samples #examples #stitching #sewing #craftersofinstagram #teachingcraft #learnsomethingnew #handstitching #loveteaching #christinegreencrafts #craftingatthecottage

I recently ran an online workshop making these lovely patchwork balls. These are my examples, made from shirts and ties that a friend gave me. They were her husband’s, who sadly died a couple of years ago. I made these so she could give them to her great grand children in memory of a lovely man. #memories #balls #patchwork #patchworkismytherapy #lovesewing #recycling #makesomethingspecial #inmemory #pentagons #learnsomethingnew #craftworkshops #makingisgoodforyou #stitch #stitchersofinstagram #christinegreencrafts #craftingatthecottage

Ta-dah!!! After a bit of cussing I managed to squish the huge feather cushion pad into its new cover and now feeling rather chuffed. I’m not good at zips so will hand stitching it shut whilst watching more marvellous ‘Schitt’s Creak’. #finished #patchwork #handstitched #inspiredbyboro #seatcover #mytherapy #furnishingfabrics #improvpatchwork #feelingpleased #alldone #christinegreencrafts #craftingatthecottage #patchworkscrapwork

Delighted to announce that the BBC are repeating ‘Make! Craft Britain! tonight, the first episode which features me trying to teach papercutting whilst being filmed! It was a joy to be involved with this show and I am very chuffed with how it turned out. It’s on at 11pm but if, like me, your days have slipped out of whack by a couple of hours 11 is the new 9!!! And if you miss it then you can catch it on iPlayer or via my website. Enjoy!!!!

Another pair of Levi’s very visibly patched with a mix of denim and a pair of swimming trunks. I love this method of slow stitching, perfect for this moment in time.

Out for a tramp round the fields, lots of folk have left their mark in the snow. Some of these footprints could inspire patchwork projects #inspiration #snow #footprintsinthesnow #patchworkinspiration #patchwork #keepeyesopen #detail #outwalking #christinegreencrafts #craftingatthecottage #footsteps

Thank you to Deb Alma, the emergency port at the @poetrypharmacy for sharing this pic. I made this paper cut for her when she opened the pharmacy in Bishop’s Castle. An inspiring, beautiful place to visit and one day I hope to run a papercutting course there. #poetrypharmacy #bishopscastle #emergencypoet #wellworthavisit #poetryfeedstheear #papercut #bespoke #specialplace #handcrafted #handlettering #drawnbyhand #cutbyhand #lovecrafting #christinegreencrafts #craftingatthecottage
