Space theme piñatas, woven jewellery, hooded velvet capes, patchwork blankets and many more autumn crafts in Mollie Makes issue 45. Plus, FOUR free gifts inside!
Notice anything different about us this month? Yep, we’ve had a bit of a makeover – we consider this the equivalent to breakup hair – we’re turning over a new leaf (ahem) and we love it. Read more about the change in Mollie Makes editor, Lara Watson’s letter on our new-look cover, reflecting more of our crafting passions, love of typography and creative lifestyle.
But that’s not the only new thing about this issue, no siree! You’ll notice Mollie Makes issue 45 is a little weightier; while our bum might look big in this, it’s a price we’re willing to pay to bring you 8 paper designs in this issue and at no expense to the projects and lifestyle pages inside. What will you use them for? Gift wrap, scrapbooking perhaps? Show us using the #molliemakers hashtag on Instagram and Twitter (@molliemakes).
That’s not the only free gift, also inside Mollie Makes issue 45 you’ll find a crochet flower frame kit, a set of free sentiment printables, plus a Mittens and Gloves booklet including 3 Toft Alpaca patterns to knit and crochet – just in time for autumn – we do love to spoil you.
On to the craft projects! Hit the scrap basket, or treat yourself to a stack of fresh fat quarters – it’s time to piece together a patchwork quilt! If you’re new to the craft you’ll be pleased to hear that this beginner quilt tutorial includes tips on gathering fabrics, cutting and arranging them, as well as making and adding binding. Go on, give it a whirl!
Among other craft tutorials, including a show-stopping comet piñata, crochet bobble hat by Kat Goldin, dinosaur embroidered hoop art, a patchwork camera bag and a hooded velvet cape, we’re stitching constellation coasters, painting galaxy nail art and wearing DIY galaxy t-shirts inspired by the cosmic trend.
What’s more, we meet super-blogger Meredith Crawford (AKA One Sheepish Girl) and tour the home of Rachel Essex filled with an eclectic array of treasures.
