If you were reading my blog way back in February, I was waxing lyrical about the great selection of crafty magazines available from supermarkets in France, such as these two...
On Monday, I was in W.H. Smith looking at the plethora of sewing- and craft-orientated magazines available. My goodness - how they have multiplied in recent months! 'Making', 'Sew Hip', 'Sew', 'Mollie Makes', 'Craft Seller', 'Simply Homemade' and 'Handmade Living' have all, on occasions, found their way into my shopping basket. But when I picked up this glossy magazine, it instantly felt different...
And then I looked at the projects and had my suspicions confirmed - it is indeed French in origin!
The magazine has lots of lovely sewing related projects, as well as others. I love the Russian Dolls and the Beach Hut on this one...
Matching the motifs below is a really lovely one of a sewing machine. I can't show it as it is not pictured (there's just the chart) and there are dire warnings beside the charts about not infringing copyright!
Most of the charts are gloriously large and clear - squinting not required!
I have done one very small project from the magazine already, which I will share soon!
