Your Mollie Makes
October has been a busy old month for us and it looks like it’s been busy for all of you too. Here’s just a few of our fave makes you’ve tagged us in this month – keep using the hashtag #molliemakers and we might share yours next month!

You asked for some Halloween content and your wish is our command. We’ve been pinning loads of spooky makes, recipes and inspo to Pinterest in anticipation for the big day. Give our Halloween board a follow for last-minute party ideas and costumes.
And, illustrator and winner of the Mollie Makes Handmade Awards Holly Maguire is doing a spooky takeover on our Instagram today! She’s going to share her studio, life and design process with you, so head over to ask her all your questions. She’ll also be giving you a free, autumnal wallpaper for Wallpaper Wednesday – we’re all treats, no tricks.
As we say goodbye to October and issue 98 (don’t worry – you can get it here if you missed out) we welcome November and the arrival of issue 99! The latest issue goes on sale Thursday and is bringing the Christmas magic with a colourful Christmas jumper, crochet bauble gift tags and, of course, teeny stocking-sized felties dressed as characters from the Nutcracker. What’s more festive than that?
This month also comes with Sarah Matthews’ paper star decorations that you can make and fill with treats. They’ve got that luxe vibe which means you won’t be able to resist putting up that tree early. Sarah is a papercraft legend and we’re honoured to have her take over the Mollie Instagram Friday to share all her top tips, paper advice and her fave Christmas traditions.
If you’re super impatient like us, make sure you subscribe to Mollie to get your copy delivered straight to your door. Or, buy a subscription as a Christmas gift to keep pals sweet.
