Here at StickyTiger, we get most of our inspiration from the internet, but there’s something pretty good about settling down on a cold afternoon with a hot cuppa and the most recent issue of our favourite craft magazine. We read all sorts, covering almost everything from sewing to paper art, but if you’re new to the world of crafting, it can be hard to tell which ones are worth buying; if you’re struggling with where to start, read on – today we’ve got our favourite craft magazines that are definitely worth a subscription.
Mollie Makes is like the Queen of craft magazines; as well as being bright, cheerful and beautiful in its layout, the content makes it the undisputed number one on our list. Covering almost all areas of the crafting world, each month offers the reader step-by-step projects with templates, crochet and knitting patterns, easy sewing tutorials and tips on improving your skills. On top of all that, there are interviews, written pieces and some of the best home tour features you’ll find – we challenge you to come away not feeling full of inspiration!
Reloved is a special type of magazine, with a pretty niche subject – upcycling. It celebrates the art of taking the unloved and unwanted, and turning it into something fabulous and useful; they specialise in home decoration and furniture projects, but you’ll occasionally find clothing and accessories popping up as well.
Probably the most comprehensive papercraft magazine (well, we think so, anyway!), Papercrafter covers everything paper related from card-making and book-binding to garlands, decorations, decoupage and paper cutting. As an added bonus, each issue comes complete with kits and paper books that have been designed by different illustrators – so it’s always easy to jump straight in and get crafting.
From cushions to sew to cakes to bake, Homemaker is the magazine for anyone who enjoys spending time feathering their nest. Full of interior spreads, projects to take part in and top tips for finding and making the best homeware accessories, there's also regular free fabric and project kits included with different issues.
