Mollie Makes 42 calls for tea time treats with a bloomin’ lovely knitted tea cosy tutorial, bespoke bunting, three FREE gifts and more
Clear your craft tables, Mollie Makers – issue 42 has arrived! Dip into our selection of DIYs, tutes and project ideas starting with a showstopping knitted tea cosy pattern. Get some cookies in the oven; host a craft party – you’ve got to show this off!
Mollie Makes 42 includes three FREE gifts (try saying that outloud) including a free Clover pom pom maker from Hobbycraft for UK readers. We’re preparing for World Pomination, people (visit The Handmade Fair to find out more), which explains gift number two: our mini booklet filled with 8 pom pom fashion and home DIYs – let’s just say things just got serious. Don’t forget your free drawstring pouch kit! Embroider and sew Jenny’s exclusive Sublime Stitching anchor motif into a coastal-cool keepsake.
Also in Mollie Makes 42 we’re rediscovering the art of marbling. Yes, it’s back and it comes with a twist. Turn to page 38 to find out how we put a bold, contemporary swing on it.
Summer’s all about crafting in the fresh air, right? And what better way to transport your crochet and knitting projects than in a crisp, handmade backpack. We’ve got the full tutorial on how to make a backpack that’ll outshine what’s available on the high street. While we love being outdoors the summer sales are unavoidable; we’re keeping it crafty though with a crochet market basket as seen on page 68.
Other projects in Mollie Makes 42 include a gold leather and neon pom pom necklace (#worldpomination); caravan shaped cushions for happy campers; crochet rattles for tiny tikes and more. Find all your project templates here.
Enjoy the issue! xx
