I’m a big fan of a new-to-me magazine that I came across on a recent trip to my local Barnes & Noble. Mollie Makes magazine is, as the cover states, “for people who love the crafty life.” Umm, yes … that would be us! As a UK-based magazine, it’s probably something that my Fat Quarterly team mates are already familiar with, but I am so glad to see that it is now available stateside. It focuses on the areas of making, thrifting, collecting, and crafting, and the two issues that I’ve been able to get my hands on are chock full of more beautiful photography, inspirational project ideas, news & information, and patterns than you can shake a stick at. It’s also accompanied by a gorgeous blog.
Here’s a brief description of the magazine, directly from the editor:
Today’s crafters are creating a whole new aesthetic which is inspired by vintage, love of all things handmade, and showing off their individual style. They are crafting socially in cafés and clubs, and they are sharing their ideas globally, using the internet as a giant poster. This is why Mollie Makes is so much more than a traditional project book – it is a lifestyle magazine for the generation who make up the handmade revolution.
