Halloween is just around the corner and this month we’re bringing you a selection of projects with varying degrees of spookiness! If you or your children enjoy getting into the Halloween spirit we have some “frightful” designs you’ll love, including my personal favourite, Emma Friedlander-Collins’ Day of the Dead wig. This perfect dressing up piece is so versatile. It works for both adults and children, and if you wear the beautiful removable floral crown by itself, you’ll have a fabulous summer accessory too. This is definitely the outfit I will be wearing to answer the door to trick or treaters this year!
Moving on from Halloween, we also have some gorgeous creations that capture a different sort of autumnal spirit, including our stunning cover piece by Deborah Stuart. The striking shape of this hat is inspired by the Art Deco period, but we think it is bang up to date.
Finally, you may have noticed a new addition to the cover this issue. Over the next few months we are going to be rewarding our readers with some gorgeous free gifts. This month’s offering is a set of very pretty lockable stitch markers. I have been using my preview set already, as you will be able to see in my mini masterclass on how best to use your new markers on page 82 and also in my accompanying apple doorstop pattern on page 85. Next issue, keep an eye out for some beautiful teardrop marking pins, and stay tuned for more wonderful surprises in the upcoming months!
