Enjoy the Holiday 2012 issue of Stitch Craft Create magazine in an easy-to-access digital PDF format. This issue is filled with wonderful cold-weather projects and Valentine’s Day crafts.
The beginning of a new year is an ideal time to start fresh, so why not try your hand at making something different? Explore corners of the craft store you would usually avoid, or experiment with materials you might not generally consider. For example, we’ve got some beautiful ways to repurpose the patterned paper that lines security envelopes for Valentine decorations; how’s that for thinking outside the mailbox? Winter is also when we spend many hours indoors escaping harsh weather, and you might find yourself looking to spruce up your surroundings. We’ve got you covered with an on-trend, chevron pillow with buttons, a set of sweetly stitched embroidery hoops and crafty ideas for creating a winter white mantel.
If it’s yourself you’re looking to adorn, you won’t be able to resist our collection of beautifully fashioned accessories, from a ruffled crochet cowl to a felt and flannel scarf, a stunning vintage-inspired necklace (79) and more. Feeling hungry for inspiration? We’ve prepared a delicious visual treat in the form of this issue’s feature interview with Leslie Shewring, who blogs at A Creative Mint as well as guest-blogs color stories at Decor8.
Plus, get an insider’s look at the Sewing Summit, a coveted modern sewing and blogging event; and allow yourself to be blown away by crochet artist Shauna Richardson’s larger-than-life “Lionheart” project, created for the 2012 London Olympics.
As always, we’ve carefully selected versatile projects you’ll be able to adapt and enjoy well into the rest of the year, making the entire issue a keeper. So prepare yourself for some sweet ideas and let us help you kick off your most creative year yet.
