Get two free gifts in Mollie Makes 41, hang out with Kirstie Allsopp, crochet a bike guard, stitch letter bunting, make a felt cassette gadget cosy and more
Hello #molliemakers, Mollie Makes 41 hits the shelves today, and what an issue it is. Go old school with our cover gift and stitch a cassette style phone case. The retro vibes don’t end there, either – dust off your My Little Pony toys, make patchwork LP placemats, crochet a bike guard, and hang out with Kirstie Allsopp.
Along with this month’s pretty glitzy shoe clips gift issue 41 includes 7 limited-edition prints designed by Helena Tracey reminiscent of 90s teen mag centrefold posters (ah, remember them?). Choose your favourites, cut ’em out and washi tape to your craft room wall as inspiration. There’s more! As a ‘thank you’ to our subscribers, as well as an extra project in each issue of Mollie Makes, this month you’ll get 3 exclusive postcards illustrated by Emma Block. Yay!
On to the craft projects! Typographical tees, felt cassette mobile cosies, crochet bike guards, letter bunting (we should all send more snail mail), record plactemats, crochet hangers and more are testament to our retro roots. We’ve got love for you if you we born in the -0s (ahem). Getting started on these projects? Plug in and listen to our Retro Vibes Spotify playlist – put together by you and the team. Find your project templates here.
When the summer sun steals your away from your sewing table, enjoy our Good Reads on page 34 and 76 where we celebrate creative chaos and discuss how to price handmade goods, or hang out with Kirstie Allsopp (who’ll be presenting The Handmade Fair) who talks work-life balance and Twitter habits. A chock-full issue!
