About six or eight months ago, I noticed this new crafty magazine called Mollie Makes. It's fabulous!
On the cover there is always a big picture of a wonderful, hand-crafted something-or-other, like the crocheted veggies, knit mug cozy, and sewn journal covers on the magazines above. The thing that made me buy my first issue was the craft kit attached to the cover--every issue has something new!
The latest issue that I have gotten, below, has a package of exclusive ribbon instead of a craft kit. I'm a sucker for a freebie, and although I know I'm paying for it in the price of the magazine (which isn't cheap--$12 in the U.S.), I still feel like I'm getting a gift.
This magazine is printed in the U.K., so some of the advertisements are for stores I don't have access to, but it is still really fun to see those stores!
Each issue has pages like the ones below, which showcase crafts and products of interest to those of us who are crafty-minded. I get inspired every time I look at it!
Every issue also has patterns and directions to make different things, like these crocheted wrist warmers that were featured on the cover...
or tattoo-inspired embroidery patterns.
This magazine feels new and fresh and "now". If you are interested in crafts and crafting, you will probably love this magazine as much as I do. I buy it for myself as a special treat!
