By Hand Serial Magazine, No. 12/London
When we learned about this issue, we knew it would be perfect for our shop and our Lakes Makerie customers! Great projects using fabrics we love. Tours of places we adore like Liberty, London and Merchant and Mills. Plus, who doesn't want to learn make hot cross buns?
The patterns and projects in By Hand Serial Lookbook #12 are the push you’ve needed to stretch your wings a little and try your hand at something new. All of the projects are beautiful and functional: an opportunity to make simple, classic pieces that will become core staples in your wardrobe. Patterns from Andrea Hungerford and Hannah Thiessen include a quilted vest sewn from jacquard cotton; a classic knitted turtleneck to wear alone or as the perfect layering piece; and a lightweight cardigan with carefully crafted details and a soft mohair halo will carry you from spring into summer. Knitting patterns also include a clever colorwork vest by Sylvia Watts-Cherry, and a hat and scarf set with striking cables by Irina Pi. Sew a flattering lounge set in one Liberty London’s vibrant floral prints, play with English Paper Piecing with Florence Knapp’s Eight Dials quilt, and try your hand at natural dyeing with small pieces of fabric that you can sew into a handy dumpling drawstring pouch. We have even included a recipe direct from Bread Ahead’s English Teatime baking class!
