Hello Sunshine, Hello Springtime…Hello Mollie Makes!

It is true what they say, a little bit of sunshine goes a really long way – finally it feels like I can pack away my winter coat (which is a good thing as I actually no longer fit into it any more!!)

Another thing that has really lifts my creative spirits is seeing my mini weaving on the cover gift kit on the latest Mollie Makes!

Have you grabbed the latest issue yet?

Being asked to create the cover gift kit of Mollie Makes is a pretty big deal for a gal like me…I can even tell you how excited I have been waiting to see this little beaut pop up on the cover!!

As usual, it is a fantastic issue…I mean not just because my face is in there!! There is lots to read and make and the eagle eyed will notice a project from up new sewing book that comes out next month!

I know… I can hardly believe it myself! If you like the look of this sweet little girls dress then Im happy to tell you that there are stacks of designs in my new book…and here’s a cheeky heads up I will be sharing a make & giving you a chance to win a copy next month to celebrate it launch.

But for now, let me just enjoy the having made the cover gift for this month’s Mollie Makes – ‘cos for sure that is a crafty gal’s dream come true!

*dreamy sigh*

Weaving is one of the most accessible and inspiring textile crafts out there – and I have been blown away by the response to my book Modern Weaving – which has pretty much been in the Top 10 on Amazon since it went on sale in October – I know, right?!

As a wee thank you I thought I would run a little giveaway to win a signed copy – so if you’ve had this on your wish list for a while, it might be worth entering!

If you’ve always fancied giving weaving a try, now is a great time to give it a go as I have three signed copies of my book Modern Weaving to giveaway to three lucky Made Peachy readers! If you fancy winning a copy, just leave a comment below sharing why you’d love to give weaving a try!

Winners will be picked at random and announced on the 30 March – Good Luck!

    This is exciting, congrats!! I’ve always wanted to give a serious attempt at weaving (I’ve tried two times to make my own cardboard loom & neither has worked out too well, haha), so I’d love a book to help!! Thanks for the fun giveaway 🙂

    I’m loving the loom from Mollie Makes! A friend has given me her copy as a gift. I’m recovering from post viral fatigue and I’m discovering joy and healing in creating and crafting. I’ve never tried weaving before, didn’t know it was something I could do at home, but having tried it I love it! I’d love to continue the journey with your beautiful book.

    I have a subscription to Mollie Makes and I love the cover gift kit- I haven’t made it yet, but it looks like perfection! I think my daughter and I are going to try together. Congrats on a beautiful design!

    how exciting – congrats! it’s a really lovely, modern make.
    I actually bought this edition of mollie makes today JUST for the loom project! I’ve been hoarding weaving pins for a while but not actually having a go so I’m so excited to finally get hands on. I love the extra chunky section with all the colours threaded together – I’ve not seen that before, it’s wonderfully painterly.
    I want to start learning how to weave because I love playing with colour and I also sporadically buy beautiful yarn even though I don’t know how to knit or crochet! So I feel like weaving will be a way to showcase and enjoy all the wonderful textures, colours and sparkles I have hoarded like a kind of fibre wall jewellery 😄. Not to mention it will be an excuse to collect even more indie yarn.
    it also looks like it’s a wonderfully rhythmic practice so I’m hoping it will be a fun way to unwind (apologies for terrible pun)
