Mollie Makes - Issue 86

Issue 86 is here and it’s all-out, unashamedly Christmassy. After all, there are less than two months to go!

We’ve got lots of festive tutorials for you, for a seasonal table setting, crochet baubles, three Christmas jumpers (because one is never enough), a winter wreath, and a cracker cushion. There’s a felt reindeer cover gift and bonus Nordic homestyle magazine, to make winter even cosier. And we haven’t forgotten about festive food, with a recipe for a comforting gingerbread cake.

Not ready for Christmas? You can steer clear of festive crafts and make your own tassel earrings, velvet bag or luxe pouffe.

Nordic homestyle magazine

Why have one mag when you can have two? Issue 86 comes with a Nordic homestyle supplement, with 43 ideas for cozy winter living. Take style cues from the New Nordic trend, making your surroundings light and airy with a pared-back color palette, and filling them with greenery, chunky yarn and other natural textures to add warmth and interest. Packed with tactile, easy-to-make projects and styling ideas, the magazine is all you need to create your own Nordic-inspired space this festive season.

Meet Sian Elin and Cassie Byrnes

We had a good old nosey round the home of designer Sian Elin, whose products are stocked by Oliver Bonas and Heal’s. Prepare for plenty of color, cheerful patterns and expert styling. Down in Melbourne, we caught up with textile designer Cassie Byrnes, for a sunny dose of 80s-inspired patterns.
