welcome

Seeing as it’s finally no-jacket-needed weather, this issue is full of ways to celebrate summer. After trying and failing to figure out a way of working outside, Team Mollie decided to channel the sunshine via the medium of making instead! So, this month you can whip up a simple 90s-inspired shift dress for BBQs with friends or weekends away. Or, tie-dye and sew a knotted hairband for a more casual festival feel. And don’t forget to jazz up your home, too. We’ve got a terrazzo-print tablecloth, floral resin coasters, and the cheeriest décor inspiration from colour lover and upcycler extraordinaire Joanne Condon. But, the ultimate new season accessory has to be this month’s gift – a cute crochet avo! Hook up this brunch icon for your keyring, then share your snaps…

“I can never resist avo if I spot it on a menu, so I was thrilled to whip up this little veggie fella for this issue of Mollie Makes! As he’s mini, he’s a brilliant first project if you’re new to amigurumi, and the kit contains everything you’ll need. I’ve named mine Charlie and I have him hanging up at home – he makes me smile whenever I see him. And of course he’d be ace to cheer up your bunch of keys or to dangle merrily from a bag. Hook one for a plant-fuelled pal, or treat yourself to a simple make. Make sure you add plenty of filling to his avocado stone belly! The pastel shades are a fun, playful twist, and of course he’s not complete without those blushing…
