Have you seen any of the new Mollie Makes magazines that have come to us from the UK? I saw my first one shortly before Christmas at a craft store, but with the hustle and bustle of the season had to sadly leave it on the magazine rack. I finally came across another copy (not at a craft store) and brought it home with me.
While $12.00 is difficult for me to pay for a magazine, it is cheaper than the Stampington line of publications. (That's how I justified the purchase.) I thoroughly enjoyed the patterns, advertisements, articles, and eye candy photography. It definitely has a whimsical and vintage appeal which drew me to the previous issue. Each copy also comes with a small craft kit. Issue 9 which came out right before Christmas had a small Belle and Boo needle case craft kit. You can see my finished masterpiece below.

I knew Mollie Makes was for me when I saw an advertisement for a quilt shop in Brighton. This Jane Austen fan just about swooned.
At this point, I have only seen Mollie Makes at my local JoAnn's store and Books A Million. Issue 9 is pictured, but Issue 10 is already available. (Mollie Makes lists by issue number not by month.)
Here's my Belle and Boo needle case and the kit's packaging.
