Look What I Made!

I got this kit for the little fox brooch from Mollie Makes magazine, my newest favorite.

Mollie Makes features several projects in each issue, and includes a kit for one of them!  The magazine is published in Great Britain, so it is full of fun expressions like: "We've always quite fancied..." and words are spelled the British way (of course) - for example: "fibre" and "colour".  But besides the British charm, it is chock full of great ideas.

This is going to be my next project - a pretty felt Dala horse.  They have an article about a woman who collects wooden Dala horses and talks about their history.  So I learned something new!  I love working with felt, and Mollie Makes always has a couple of felt projects to work on.

It is pretty spendy, but I am going to ask Santa for a subscription.  But, in case you are interested, here is the info about how to subscribe.  They carry the magazine at JoAnn Fabric and Crafts as well.

I didn't receive anything from Mollie Makes for this post, but if they want to give me a free subscription for the free publicity, I would accept it (Are you listening, editors?  Hint, hint!)!


  1. I have a couple copies of Mollie Makes on my iPad. I think I need to check out the patterns in them.

  2. Cute brooch!
    Fancy you not saying "we've always quite fancied"!

  3. What a cute little fox! I should go get a copy of the magazine just so I can see the article on the dala horses. I collect those. I can't wait to see the one you make!


I love to receive comments - please tell me what you think!
