This London-based crafter went from hand-stitching bunting for friends to supplying stock to Cath Kidston. Nicky Grace talks about working off an antique ironing board, running her business from home and reveals what it’s like to wake up to vintage fabric every day
Dutch design just makes us swoon. Simple as. Today, we’re super-excited to interview Eline Pellinkhof, crafter, designer and illustrator extraordinaire, and get a peek behind the scenes of her latest book, Eline’s Winterhuis.

We had literally hundreds of entries for the Jane Foster doll comp and were we surprised – er no! Jane Foster is a wonderous artist and designer and we totally love her work. In fact we are totes gutted we couldn’t enter.
So thank you to all of you that entered our fab comp and we are delighted to announce that we have picked a winner…Mollie Makes style drum roll please…
Congratulations Catherine Johnstone you are winner!! Whoop whoop!
Hello! I’m Tilda and i belong to Catherine!
This book first called out to me from the heavy set trestle table of the Urban Outfitter’s book dept. It was most unexpected. I had only nipped in for a sneaky late back to work nose at the sale rail, but as I slid along the shiny parke floor I saw the words I’d always dreamt of seeing in the same sentence: indie + craft.
Now, for you die hard publishing fans, who are already saying “this book has been out for while” you’d be right, and we know, but seeing as the Mollie Makes blog launched post it being published, we cannot miss the opportunity to include and express love.
Indie Craft is an inspiring anthology of craftiness showcasing the supercool wave of craft that’s made the world sit up and take note.
If we ever wanted a new best friend it would be Emily Peacock.
