We’re so excited to introduce you to the new Mollie on 19th May. The rebrand comes in answer to the ever-evolving creative community and the way many of us, as busy individuals, are gravitating towards simple projects with big impact – particularly for our immediate environment.


Why Mollie Makes became Mollie

The new Mollie brings you more interiors-focused DIYs so you can create a beautiful home with your own hands. Making sustainable living accessible is also at the heart of Mollie, with inspiring ideas for refashioning existing wardrobe garments and mending much-loved items, plus tried and tested green beauty and cleaning product recipes.

Over the years we have come to be known in conversation, by designers and readers alike, as just, Mollie – and we love that! It’s how we refer to the magazine within the team and we’re glad that you’ve also taken a less formal approach to referring to our magazine.

So, we’ve dropped the ‘Makes’ in name, though certainly not in content. Each issue, independent designer-makers create 14 trend-led, beginner-friendly craft projects, giving you the ideas, skills, and confidence to take your creativity to the next level. Who said a fresh start is exclusive to the new year? Be inspired to live a creative life with Mollie. On sale 19th May in a supermarket near you.

Meet Geri Sammut Alessi & The Modern Crafter

Mollie Makes home profile

We met three wonderful designers this issue. @overatno18 and @themoderncrafter were two instagram accounts we stumbled upon way back in the earlier days of Mollie. We loved (and followed!) them immediately so were super excited when we got the chance to interview them! First we met Geri from @overatno18. She showed us round her colour clash home which she proudly calls 'a land of magnolia'. Her home is a complete inspiration and full of great budget DIY projects. Make sure you pick up a copy of the mag to see inside the famous number 18.

We also spoke to The Modern Crafter. This sister duo are fan favourites and have made several incredible projects for Mollie. We spoke to them about their new punch needle book, sourcing local products and their design process. If you're a fan of punch needle projects you'll want to read this interview! Pick up a copy of 142 to read both of these wonderful interviews.
