Can you believe it’s already mid July!? This year is flying by and it feels like only yesterday we were bringing you issue 100. Well fast forward seven months and we’re here presenting issue 108 to you in all its summery glory. We’ve christened this mag the tasty issue. There’s delicious looking things like crochet freakshakes and fruit face cloths. And, there’s tasty granola popsicle recipes which you can eat on your funky new picnic blanket after harvesting your crop with your new trug.
It’s also a delicious explosion of colour this issue. Sunset skies, party alpacas and dangly bead earrings all add to the colourful world of 108. All that’s left is for you to pick up a copy in store or online (or subscribe to Mollie) and get making in the sun this weekend.

Your free gift
This month’s free gift is Laura Reed’s beautiful flower paper wall hanging. Isn’t it just the loveliest thing you’ve ever seen? We can imagine this hanging above your bed and adding a touch of floral elegance to the room. Laura is taking over the Mollie Instagram account on the 11th July and will be showing you her top tips on making, folding and gluing your floral gift. If you miss Laura’s takeover don’t worry, we’ll be saving all her takeover content to our highlight named ‘108’.
Meet Hannah Davis (Wolf & Moon) and Ciara Elliot
In issue 108 we met two very talented women from two different design disciplines! We had a wander around Hannah Davis’ dreamy creative workspace and talked about her jewellery line Wolf & Moon. This interview is a must read as Hannah explains her work process, her career progression and – most importantly – why handmade jewellery is so special.
Then we were lucky enough to meet Ciara Elliot, journalist and interior designer, at her eclectic Georgian home. As you can only imagine from an interior designer’s home, Ciara’s space blew us away. Pick up a home of issue 108 to see this beautiful pad and get some inspo for your own.
