New mollie Makes Magazine Review/Crochet Patterns/ Felt and Sewing Patterns

I found this great new magazine today at Barnes Noble!It is from the UK.  I have to
say that I am impressed.  It is full of beautiful photographs and patterns for you to make your own beautiful items.  It comes with a kit to make a cover for your smart phone.  It has all of the supplies needed except the thread.  The instructions and the pattern to finish your phone case are inside the magazine.  The crochet pattern for the apple holders that are on the cover are also included.  There is a great article about
Dottie Angel.  There is a wonderful article for Happy Little Garlands and the directions for making your own.  A great article, Dreaming of a Summer Party has information for throwing th perfect Summer Party, including, invitations and decorations.  And look at this beautiful way to dress up your old bicycle!

There is an adorable Chihuahua pattern included, patterns for Peter Pan Collars and so much more.The next issue looks to be equally awesome and it will have a free felt flower kit included. I would love a subscription for this magazine but just checked the U.S. price and it is like $60.00/year, so I guess I will just keep checking the shelves at BN and if I come across a really good one, buy it. 

Here are a couple of other pictures
