Craft Leftovers, old & new!

Happy days are always here, whenever a new issue of Craft Leftovers Monthly plops onto my doormat! 😀 The September issue arrived last week while I was catching up after the Bazaar, and it was lovely to finally have to sit down for a good read with it, over the weekend. 🙂

The September issue of CLM is all about miniatures and includes:

  • Smitten Kitten miniature 3-dimensional knitted cat project
  • miniature fabric banner project
  • an interview with amigurumi queen Denise
  • The Crafty Life cartoon by Fanie Gregoire
  • mini tie-quilt project, how to knit in miniature
  • …and quite possibly the cutest project EVER – the entire zine reproduced at doll’s house scale, for you to cut out & staple together. Genius!

This issue also features 2 projects by yours truly (previously available in my currently discontinued half-size Borrowers zine):

  • how to make your own matchbox (inc. templates)
  • plus a Borrower-scale rug (or mug rug) in retro waves, to cross stitch or needlepoint.

Buy your copy from the TangleCrafts Etsy Store and receive a FREE ‘mystery’ mini-zine!

Don’t forget that previous issues of Craft Leftovers Monthly are also available!  The most recent 3 are available in my Etsy store, and the full range is available from the Craft Leftover Shop, including:

  • August 2010 – My favourite issue to date – all about books!  This issue includes: Woven & Stitched Bookmark project, an interview with Susan Angebranndt of Green Chair Press, a Library Bag to crochet, an awesomely simple fabric-covered book holder project, The Crafty Life cartoon by Fanie Gregoire, a wonderful book-cover journal project, AND a 5 page article about zine-making by me.
  • SUMMER 2010 – This bumper issue features: the M.A.P. (Museum All Purpose) Bag pattern, Plaited Paper Basket mini-zine & kit, paper plate masks, a crafty city guide to Montreal by Fanie Gregoire, crafty cartoons, puzzles and reviews, lots more fun stuff and stories from Kristin, AND a mail art travel kit feature by me, to accompany Kristin’s awesome Postal Clutch.

  • August 2009 – It’s all about drawing (especially for the slightly scared, like me!).  Includes: how to make your own charcoal, book reviews, fold-out pattern to sew your own Pencil Wrap , & lots more inspiration.

  • July 2009 – This issue was my favourite until this year’s August issue came along!  July ’09 features: a block printing tutorial, all about silk screening, reviews of books about bookmaking, plus how to make your own mini-book.
