ThursdayThoughtsLogo

Inspiring Magazines

Mollie Makes issue 29

Mollie Makes – issue 29

Blog/websiteFacebookGoogle+InstagramPinterestTwitterYouTube

There are so many things to inspire in this month’s issue of Mollie Makes that I hardly know where to start. I just love the sardine keyring stitch gift, the felt lollies and crocheted ice creams for the project side of things, but then there are so many interior photos and book reviews, not to mention interviews that you will not be sorry you bought this issue! Go and buy one now – if you haven’t already!

Homemaker issue 8Homemaker issue 8

For me, this issue has to be the most inspirational of the eight published so far. From the owl doorstop kit to the flower/tea lights bowl via Bunny Boo, hallway decoration ideas and napkin decoupage, there is probably something for everyone here. I wish I had time to implement all the ideas this issue has evoked in me!

Craftseller issue 26Craftseller issue 26

If you are looking for inspiration for your next project to put in your shop, then you can’t go wrong looking at Craftseller. There are ideas for every craft-minded individual to include needle felting, crochet, sewing, felties, amigurumi, jewellery making, cardmaking and scrapbooking. I am certainly inspired to have a go at the little Babushka/Matryoshka dolls!
