I’m not normally a girl that purchases magazines, but lately, I seem to find myself subscribing to a handful of publications such as Uppercase, Anthology and now, Mollie Makes. Each issue is packed full of quality images and amazing content making them into mini collector books instead of magazines that you glance a few times before they sit in the recycle box.

With each sold out store that I visited, it just made me * that * more anxious to get my hands on my own copy of Mollie Makes and finally found an issue a few weeks ago. As I leafed through the pages, I was definitely impressed. Pretty pictures? Yes. Easy tutorials? Yes. Great articles about what’s happening in the DIY world? Absolutely!
For their first issue, Mollie Makes teamed up with contributors such as Tif Fussell aka Dottie Angel, Alexandra Smith aka Lola Nova and Elisabeth Dunker aka Fine Little Day to name a few. It includes a handy diary listing all the places to check out for the upcoming month including vintage and craft events throughout the UK. And, if that wasn’t enough, it also includes super easy to follow tutorials for making your own apple cozies, projects using ruffles, garlands, fabric eggs and a sly felt fox. My favourites were reading about Charlotte Macey, a young British Designer specializing in freestyle embroidery on natural linen and cotton and the sneak peek inside the home of Paula Mills where she talks about her eclectic style and found treasures.
