Welcome to a year of fresh beginnings, creativity and lots of craft tutorials (natch) in Mollie Makes magazine. We hope you’ve had a good rest because we’re about to set you off on a crafting frenzy this month. Need a sewing machine cover pattern, want to learn arm knitting? Read on.
Getting organised isn’t just for January, so in Mollie Makes issue 49 we bring you practical and pretty ways to keep your stash streamlined (see rope storage baskets and crochet jar cosy projects on the cover) and your scraps reclaimed with projects such as appliqué swan hoop art, mini weaving necklaces, geo-shaped crochet coasters and a sweet bow-back upcycled jumper.
But first thing’s first: your free gifts! This month you’ll find 8 pull-out papers and sweet treats posters plus a patchwork needlecase kit ideal for rainy day sewing. What’s more, we’ve asked Mollie-faves Candy Pop, Tigerlilly Quinn and Fall for DIY to rustle up more ways with your kit. Create delicate papercut bookmarks, hexie fabric garlands or smocked necklaces with your free craft materials in Mollie Makes issue 49. Find the full tutorials by visiting their blogs.
Up for learning new skills this year? Dig out the Polymer clay for a spot of jewellery-making or turn your hand (ahem) to arm knitting – our simple arm knitting blanket tutorial can be made in just 3 hours – you have to try it! Other tutorials include an XXL dinosaur toy, pizza pillow, embroidered tote bag and a jazzy chevron sewing machine cover pattern.
If you’re looking for interior inspiration we have creative couple Maaike and Joost on hand with crisp, zingy home ideas. While Sara Duchars of Button Bag tells us how she started a business at the kitchen table – a must-read. Enjoy the issue!
