love is in the air

This month, I’m feeling all warm and fuzzy. Partly because I’m wrapped up in a ton of layers, but also because Valentine’s Day is nearly here, and this issue celebrates love in a whole host of crafty forms. Indulge your passion for crochet with our chunky sampler scarf on page 18, whip up heart-emblazoned macramé bunting on page 54, and enter into a new relationship with the latest craft trend; rug hooking, via the dreamy textured hoop on page 39. We’re also spoiling you with the sweetest Valentine’s gift – a pom pom love birds kit, plus three bonus project ideas, all designed by pom pom queen Christine Leech. Share the love (and your makes) at #molliemakers. Turn the page for more on your free gift! Then Turn to page 67…

Bird pom poms are a bit more complex than single colour pom poms, but once you get the hang of the breast shape, they’re super-quick to create. If you’re looking for somewhere for your lovebirds to perch, make a simple swing by threading a piece of paper straw onto a length of baker’s twine and decorate with felt flowers.” Christine Leech is an author, maker, stylist and workshop host, and has sold…
