Remember we told you something exciting was happening with the mag? Well, issue 98 is arriving and it’s had a bit of a makeover! Back in April we asked you to tell us what you think about Mollie Makes, and what you enjoy reading and making from the mag. We combined your feedback, the best bits of the mag, and lots of lovely new ideas together and ta-dah! The new Mollie Makes was born.
Judge it by its cover
We’re all about celebrating contemporary craft and exploring the latest trends, so we figured it’s time the mag’s cover reflected its contents. It’s had a spruce up just in time for our first festive cover project and we hope you love it as much as we do.
It’s not just the cover either – the pages of Mollie have been given a fresh, modern feel, designed to showcase those must-have makes, the latest styling inspiration and the most recent trends in craft and lifestyle.
Long live the designers
Supporting independent designer-makers has always been at the heart of what we do at Mollie Makes. And, as each project or illustration is the result of a collab with a creative we truly love, we’ll be shouting about our amazing contributors even more, making it easier for you to connect with them.
We’ll also be showing off new, upcoming designers and creators on our Instagram. Using the #molliemakesspotlight, we’ll be sharing emerging talent every Tuesday to do our part for the indie art world. We’re so proud to be such an influential part of the handmade community, so we’re using every opportunity to share and support the people that make Mollie great.
The best of both worlds
As well bringing you easy ways to get into new and emerging crafts such as weaving and rug hooking, we’ll still be including innovative ways with traditional favourites too. Nordic-inspired crochet blanket scarf anyone? And, we’ll still be bringing you tons of craft inspiration, including a window into the homes and studios of creatives and designer-makers, and those must-make craft gifts you love so much. We’re just making sure every aspect of the mag is as amazing it can be, with beautiful photography, interesting reads and thought-out tutorials. We hope you like your new mag #molliemakers – be sure to tag us in your pictures on social and share your thoughts!
