Stitch Craft Create Magazine | August 2014

We always aim to bring you something new and unique, and this month is no exception! There’s a great selection of 18 brilliant summer craft projects in the August 2014 issue of the Stitch Craft Create magazine that we hope will tempt you to be creative…

Cocktail CookiesSummer is the time for treats, and this month’s magazine features three mouth-watering recipes that are sure to tempt you! From zingy mini cupcakes with a burst of jam to fruity pavlovas and cocktail-shaped cookies, these are definitely not to be missed. And if you’re planning a tea party, I offer my top 10 tips for making sure it all runs smoothly!

We all love to make bags, and our August 2014 issue offers three simple designs that are all practical as well as beautiful. Make a small drawstring tote to keep your gadgets safe, pack up some snacks in a handy lunch bag, and jet off on holiday with an appliqued wash bag!

Macrame NecklaceThe trend for knotting and braiding isn’t going anywhere, so we thought it was about time we gave it a go! Our four beautiful jewellery projects are perfect for beginners if you’d like to try these fun techniques for yourself. Join us for a chat with Dorothy Wood too, where she offers her top tips on these fascinating methods.

We also have four clever ideas for incorporating your personality into your craft projects, from simple alphabet blocks to cute stitched keepsakes and flower pots that can display a special message. And there are some great gift ideas for gardeners too!
