feeling jolly

This issue is all-out, unashamedly Christmas-themed, and I love it. If you’re not quite ready to dive into the festive merriment just yet though, there’s still plenty of lovely things you can craft. Luxury makes like the velvet pouffe on page 53 and embroidered bag on page 85 are a treat any time of year, and Sarah Louise Matthews’ delicate floral wreath can be hung on your wall right through to spring. Make sure to check out your bonus magazine, too. Inspired by Nordic living, it’s filled with ways for you to create a cosy, inviting feel for your home over the chilly winter months. Incorporating elements of nature with plenty of texture, it’s how we’ll be styling our homes this season.…

reindeer decoration kit

Jingle all the way… “Living in a rural Scottish town where the wildlife is abundant, it’s impossible not to be inspired. I try to capture as much of it as possible in my designs, but I have to admit, the deer is my favourite subject of all. This reindeer decoration is a colourful homage to its wild counterpart. I’ve taken one of my soft sculpture designs and simplified it, making it easy for makers of all levels to sew.The pom poms are such a fun addition, and the blanket and collar give plenty of opportunity for customising.This little love is getting centre stage on my tree this year!” Jenny Blair is a designer and maker of fun, modern embroidery and sewing kits.
