Which one’s your thing – starting a new project or finishing? It’s an age old debate among crafters, but this month Team Mollie are focusing on the pleasure in making. There’s so much enjoyment to be had, be it from the spark of a idea or the thrill in picking out fabrics. You might love the soothing rhythm of repetitive stitches, or mastering a tricky pattern. And who can forget the joy in finishing a make, or seeing someone’s face when you gift it to them? With that in mind, every project in this issue brings happiness in a different way. Whip up an easy raffia clutch in an evening, take your time over a patchwork picnic blanket the whole family can enjoy, or make a little ‘un smile with a fluffy…

Kayleigh Excell Before becoming a mother and a sewing enthusiast, Kayleigh worked in the television industry for 10 years and spent time road tripping.

“When Mollie came to me with the idea of a mini wall hanging, I smiled, as it wasn’t something I’d thought of before and I love working on new ideas. I like to make stylised flowers with clean, graphic shapes. Natural flowers inspire me, and I’m also influenced by textile design, graphics, fashion and interiors. There’s quite a lot of cutting out to do to make your paper flower hanging, but it’s deceptively easy once you’ve done that! I’ll be hanging my paper flowers up in my daughter’s bedroom. Conveniently, the colours already coordinate with the décor in there!” Find Laura at www.laurareed design.co.uk and on Instagram @laurareeddesign sharing more about her bespoke décor.
