Craftseller Magazine

 

Kate Middleton is due to give birth very soon so we’ve marked the occasion with a special baby-themed Craftseller for you! Get ready to coo because there are some seriously cute makes, particularly ideal for new babies, for you to get stuck into.

Among them, we have a felt baby photo album, a gorgeous moss stitch knitted cardi for newborns and very pretty pastel paper poms, perfect for a nursery. Elsewhere, we have an oilcloth beach mat and bag, rustic upcycled footstool and vintage-style teacup cross stitch pincushion, which seems to sell just about everywhere at the moment. And head over to page 16 to meet our cover stars this month – Magda and her beautiful babushka brood! The babushka (also known as matryoshka) trend doesn’t show any signs of waning and still sells incredibly well in the craft market.

Feature-wise, we have 10 new target markets great for craft sellers, and we have an exclusive interview with designer Mary Fellows who has been commissioned to craft for royalty!

Every month we’re on hand with quick and easy makes, ideal for successful sellers. Don’t miss out!
