Something Exciting, Coming Soon!

Well, I'm excited about it, anyhow. The new issue of Mollie Makes is out soon (subscriber copies have just been sent out) and look what's on the cover...


... a felt phone case designed (and stitched) by me! Yay!

(Remember that rainbow-themed project I was working on a couple of months ago? This is it).

I should probably act all cool and professional about this but eeeeek it is just too thrilling. I've designed projects for magazines before but this is my first "cover project", and Mollie Makes is such a lovely magazine.

I am very much looking forward to seeing the magazine "in person" (and showing it to my mum) and to standing around grinning like an idiot if I spot it on the shelves of my local newsagent :)

Oh I love that its so incredibly cute.

I always want the things I make to have something about them which makes them in some way better than what I can buy in the shops. That definitely does.

I don't always get Mollie Makes but I think that I'll be making a detour to the newsagent for this edition!

Congratulations!!! Hurray for you, Laura!! I am so happy for you- the case is adorable! And the rainbow and all of your stitching is perfect! I am one who still plays cassettes in an old boom box- some of the music can't be found on cd's! We still listen to records, too! Nice job!! Hogs and quiches to you- :)
