The UK handmade scene finally has it’s very own ace neo-craft magazine that celebrates making, collecting, thrifting and crafting. Issue two has literally just hit the newstands and features lots of fun D.I.Y projects from cute club felties, strawberry pin cushions and fabric pockets to jazz up a simple skirt. I also love the dreamy interiors articles which feature tea parties and vintage caravans and let us peek inside the work space of a fellow crafter. The design of the magazine is clean and modern with great use of pretty illustrations and plenty of beautiful photographs. Inspiring stuff.
I’m also delighted that this month’s profile page throws the spotlight on Jazz Domino Holly – whom I’ve had the pleasure to work with on many different projects throughout the years. The article in fact features a photograph of a Lady Luck Rules OK glitter rose brooch I designed for the Shoreditch Sisters WI – the first of the new wave WI’s created by Jazz. The sisters could choose from three charms to dangle from their rose: a make do and mend pair of scissors, a take action lightning bolt or a rock’n’roll musical note… Here’s some snaps from the WI workshop where we made ’em. Happy days!
