Featured in Mollie Makes magazine

I'm thrilled to be featured in this month's Mollie Makes! Find me on page 11, next to Justina Blakeney's award-winning blog The Jungalow and opposite some seriously colourful summer inspiration for books to read, tea party set ups (everyone loves a good afternoon tea, right?) and fun prints from surface pattern designer Rachel Cave.

Bound by Hand Susan Green in Mollie Makes Magazine

Huge thanks to the editorial team at Mollie Makes, who wrote:

"If you're in the market for some schweet hand-bound books, you might like to check out Bound by Hand. Run by Susan Green.. it's dedicated to selling chic, hand-bound leather sketchbooks, journals, memory books and jotters."

That's the Peach & Pale Green leather journal you can see there; it features one of my current favourite obsessions, rounded corners. Scroll down for more pics and details and to order. Use code MOLLIEMAKES for 10% off this book.

Mollie Makes also featured the colourful waxed linen thread I stock, perfect for any book making projects you're keen to start over the summer.

Now, in a cheerful daze of having my work featured in the UK's best crafty lifestyle magazine, I'm off to make a cup of tea and leaf through the magazine. I've got a craft project in mind for those gorgeous botanical papers in the middle of the magazine, designed by Holly Maguire. What are you going to make with them?
