A Floral Coffee Cosy for Mollie Makes

The September issue of Mollie Makes magazine is out now, and it includes a project by yours truly...

 

On page 93 you'll find my step-by-step tutorial for making this pretty cafetiere cosy, stitched from felt and fabric and embellished with some simple embroidery:


If you're not a coffee fan, you could use the flower and leaf templates to decorate lots of other things. I know autumn is rolling in pretty darn quickly at the moment, but florals are a joy whatever the season!

It's Bargain O'Clock

I feel duty bound to tell you guys that my book, Super-Cute Felt, is currently available from the Book People at the ridiculously low, highly bargainous price of £4.99!

It's always strangely exciting seeing my books pop up in the Book People catalogue - like seeing them in bookshops and libraries, it makes it feel properly real seeing them surrounded by all those other books by all those other people instead of just being things that existed in my head and now sit on my bookshelf. Is that weird? It's probably weird.

ANYWAY: Click here to buy a bargain copy (or three!) of Super-Cute Felt while their stocks last.

Super-Cute Felt is of course also available from Amazon UK or Amazon USA, via your local bookshop, or direct from my publisher.

P.S. Those Amazon links are affiliate links, which means if you click on the links and buy something within that session I'll get a small percentage for the referral.
