Book Review | Mollie Makes: Making It!

Mollie Makes book review | sofiacardoso.com

(First book review of the year. Enjoy!)

For those who aren’t familiarized with Mollie Makes and you’re into crafting, diy projects, photography or any creative adventure let me tell you, you’re missing out! I first came across Mollie makes two years ago when I was browsing the internet with my mom looking for sewing patterns and we came across this crochet flower coasters tutorial. Super easy instructions with helpful step by step photos, you could say that they won two fans on that day. Since then I’ve been following the magazine through their website and last year when I traveled to London one of the things I had on my “to get list” was at least one copy of their physical magazine, I didn’t even care if it was an old edition. After not being able to find not even one copy while I was there (I probably didn’t look in the right places sigh), on my way back home while I was waiting for my flight at the airport (and for my peppermint tea to cool off, seriously who drinks tea that hot!) I was passing through one of those shops that have those tiny souvenirs, chocolates, newspapers and magazines and guess what I saw?! Yes! Me, myself and my chunky hand luggage and “lava” tea rushed immediately to the magazine rack. I won’t tell the whole story otherwise this post would turn into a traveling journal but long story short, I didn’t have money with me so I had to go to an ATM first and when I got back someone had already got a hold of it. *eye twitch*

Moving along, I had Mollie Makes Making ItThe Hard Facts You Need to Start Your Own Craft Business on my wish list for a while and was lucky to received it this Christmas (along with Art Inc). Right now any book that is oriented for artists that are building their career spark my attention so after reading a few reviews on it I knew there was valuable information on it that would come in hand.
