Mollie Makes 38 includes four sewing and embroidery projects, three crochet tutorials, two felt makes, a one fresh knitting project, plus our very first recipe. From Mother’s Day gifts, Easter egg decorations and springtime makes, this month’s issue is a marvel.
Our Easter issue of Mollie Makes is packed full of projects to take us into the first days of spring and beyond. Have you met Monsieur Lapin? The crochet rabbit featured on the cover of Mollie Makes 38 includes little beret and scarf accessories to complete the Parisian painter look – plus simple ombré egg Easter decorations to prettify our dinner tables.
Other crochet projects include a geek chic crochet vest and little lambs complete with egg-hunting gear. For those of us who are sworn knitters, Debbie Bliss’s pouffe is a great project if you’re developing your knitting skills – and a welcome reward after long days.
What about embroidery and sewing projects? O.K, are you ready? Hand stitch a felt April showers mobile, stitch the springtime blossom peter pan collar by The House of Handmade, sew Kirsty Hartley‘s kids’ dungarees for playtime buffoonery and a retro pinny with giant ric-rac –*gasp*– embroider a motivational quote on vintage linen with Marna Lunt, make a felt posy Mother’s Day bouquet and a statement cobalt blue fascinator.
Jeepers, that’s tons, and we’ve not even told you about our chat with Mollie Makes DIY Fashion guest editor, Lisa Comfort, our visit to Marlous Snijder‘s house in the Netherlands, or our biscuit recipe! We’ll give you a minute to let it all sink in…
Hang on, a biscuit recipe in Mollie Makes? Oh yes, crafters, we know you like yourselves a spot of baking too. Let’s see you donned in flour flecked pinnies, tables heaped with fresh bakes, and a cup of tea in hand. We’ll meet you on Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest and Facebook.
