Mollie Makes - Issue 87

Happy Mollie Day! Issue 87 has dropped and it’s a good ‘un.

The temperature’s falling and all we want is to stay warm and cozy on dark winter days. We’ve got tutorials aplenty to help keep you happy and snug during colder months – from a polar bear hot water bottle cozy to slouchy socks, and a crochet blanket for wee ones.

Heading out to December parties? We’ve got you covered too. You can sew our sparkly sequin cape for festive dos or make a diamond piñata to kick NYE off with a bang.

Meet Jane Foster and Atelier Stella

Prepare yourself for some serious house envy. We popped our wellies on and ventured down to Devon to have a look at Jane Foster’s quirky countryside home. Spoiler: it’s every bit as bright and bold as her iconic designs.

We also had tea and a chat with Stella Baggot, AKA Atelier Stella, maker extraordinaire of quirky-faced ceramics. Join us for a tour round her sunny Brighton studio and a peek at her cult pottery. Find out how she got started, what inspires her, and the advice she wants to share.
