It’s been a long time coming, but spring is finally on the horizon. You know that feeling you get when you spot the first flower of the season, or notice that it’s actually still light at 4pm? We’re channelling that through craft, bringing you plenty of projects that’ll evoke a little spark of happiness. From our statement shawl on the cover (I’m all about the neon) to a patchwork quilt that pays homage to the sun, each make brings cheer in its own way. Learn to weave and needle punch with creative legend Hello Hydrangea, unleash your inner artist with painted wall plates, and sew a squishable giant whale that doubles as a cosy cushion. Before you get stuck into any of those though, sew up your felt dinosaur kit and share…

“This friendly little stegosaurus pincushion is such a fun, simple project to make, with the cute design and those zingy colours making it a joy to stitch. This little guy reminds me of a fabulous character in a dinosaur book I used to read to my children when they were little. If you can’t bring yourself to stab him with pins, he’d make an equally good little decoration to brighten up a shelf. However, I love having lots of colour around me in my studio when I’m working, and will be sure to have my helpful Little Steg on hand to hold my pins and pass me a needle when required.” Creative designer-maker Jenny Blair is inspired by a love of colour, the natural bounties that surround her and a desire to…

HOW TO MAKE A CANE WEBBING PLANTER MATERIALS Four picture frames Cane webbing Wood glue Wooden dowel Plywood Saw Sandpaper Whether you’re looking for an excuse to buy a new plant baby, or you just want to make a throne for your one and only, you’ll love this modern homeware hack. Terian’s clever planter may look straight out of the 70s, but it’s actually made from old photo frames. Give those lying around a new lease of life, or hit up your local charity shop instead. Before you start, roll out the cane webbing and place something heavy on top for a few hours – this’ll help flatten it out. And, to protect the inside of the planter from water damage, line the bottom with an old plastic bag. 01 Take out the glass insert…
