Mollie Revisited

Thank you all for your comments on my last post, and for sharing your true ages.  It was fun to read the variety of responses.

Today I'd like to show you some bits and pieces that I have made in the last few days.  Whilst considering what to make that doesn't involve knitting or crocheting, I consulted my back issues of Mollie Makes magazine.  I found two projects that were quick and fun to make.

The first is this cute little apple pin cushion from issue 6.

It's hand stitched, with felt for the stalk and leaf.

These would make nice little gifts for crafty friends.

In Mollie Makes, I also saw an idea to use washi tape to decorate a jam jar.

It makes a lovely decorative pencil jar.

I'm continuing to work my way through the magazine's.  I haven't looked at them for a while and it's surprising how new inspirations come from looking at the pages with new eyes.

Whatever you are doing today, I hope you find inspiration and time for a bit of creativity.


  1. Love the apple pin cushion and the doily it is sitting on is beautiful, is it one of your makes?

    1. Thanks Lorraine. The doily is one I made a few years ago from the Tea Time pattern by Denise Augostine.

  2. Love the jar idea - might pinch that.

    1. Please do, it's a quick project and easy project. I may make some more.

  3. Lovely makes! I like the pincushion especially! xx
