The big day has come – Mollie Makes issue 97 is officially on sale!
This month we’ve been trend spotting and preparing ourselves (and our makes) for the change in weather as we embrace autumn. Inside, you’ll find lots of lovely of projects that capture the changing seasons with earthy tones, rich embroidery and cosy textures.
We’ve got fashion with a luxe clutch bag and snug cowl. We’ve got home with velvet cushions and patchwork quilts. We’ve got festive with embroidery hoops and your amazing, all-you-need-to make-it festive loom gift, and that’s not all. Issue 97 also has a special winter luxe guide to help get you in that winter (and dare we say Christmassy?) mindset.

Your gift – Festive weaving kit
Christmas is coming (106 more sleeps) and we’re celebrating with issue 97’s tactile, colourful, kitsch gift – a festive weaving kit. This little wall hanging is a fab Christmas decoration, but we think its universal colour scheme means it should hang on your wall all year round. Its maker, Natasha Humphreys, will be taking over our Instagram this Friday (14th September) for an exclusive Q&A session and to share her weaving expertise. Head over and show her, and us, some love.
Meet Stephanie Fradette, Jess Wright and Lara Davies
For this month’s issue, we met with Stephanie Fradette of Le Petit Moose to take a look around her modern-retro home. Full of plants, retro treasures and gorgeous textures, Stephanie’s earthy-toned home left us feeling inspired – and with a need to get weaving. We also met Jess Wright and Lara Davies from Home Work in their colourful textiles studio, to talk screen printing, proudest moments and creative heroes.
