mollie makes :: creative couples

Last month, Mollie Makes magazine contacted us for an interview about creative couples and we are so chuffed to be one of the six couples they chose to print! Look! There’s us with Robin + Mould, Something’s Hiding in Here, Peris & Corr, abigail*ryan homewares, and ShipShape Studio. If you are in the UK, issue ten is out today, so go check it out!

cath kidston :: magazine + new bag

Cath Kidston‘s fun and colourful prints are a British icon. I always joke to R that ladies here must be born with a Cath Kidston product in their hands as you are sure to spot one on your daily commute! The first Cath Kidston store that I ever stepped foot in was the one near Portobello market and it was pretty much love at first sight. I fell in love with everything in the store and was * almost * doing cartwheels around the pub when I found out that I had won their facebook contest for their new doctor’s bag (insert squeals here).

My package arrived over the weekend and inside was tucked a Cath Kidston magazine and I thought I would share some amazing images. You can check out the entire issue online here. Thanks so much to Cath Kidston for hosting such a fab contest! xo

giveaway :: mollie makes

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.

To celebrate the release of issue #2 on June 9th (UK), Got Craft is giving away a copy of issue #1 of Mollie Makes to one lucky reader. Just leave a comment below or send us an email to info (at) gotcraft (dot) com telling us what inspires you and don’t forget to leave an email address that we can contact you at! Contest is open to readers worldwide and a winner will be randomly chosen on Wednesday, June 15th at noon GMT.
