Handmade Magazine

By: | Tags: | Comments: 0

There are a whopping 25 fun projects in this month’s edition of Handmade Magazine.

There are small projects for the beginners – why not learn to crochet and make water bottle covers? Or make mini pincushion for the sewing room? How about stitching a simple hook roll for your crochet hooks?

Something quirky for a gift: make a stylish handbag door stop on page 54 for the instructions.

If you love making toys for the children, you can find a pattern for a hedgehog on page 32.

Do you like working with black , grey and white fabrics?  Page 70–71 has ideas for a cot quilt. Applique some flowers in bright pink and  finish with a bright pink binding.  The design is quite simple and the flowers bring it together.

Choosing the correct needle and thread for your project? Visit page 96. Different size needles are required for different thicknesses of material. If you find the needle skipping stitches you may need to change the needle to the correct size.  Follow the chart in your machine manual for needle sizes and tension setting.
