Make It Yourself Magazine

Please forgive me if I seem a bit...err...flighty today. I just got a copy of the brand spankin' new Make It Yourself magazine, and lookie at the cover!

Make It Yourself

I have two projects in the debut issue of the magazine. First, I altered my house ornament pattern so it could be made with charm squares (yay!). the other project I designed specifically for Make It Yourself. It's a sweet circus-y elephant nursery mobile, mostly made with felt. It has bunting, stars, and balancing balls, and it's paired with a wonderful quilt by Theresa Porter of meanderingthread.

There are soooo many gorgeous projects in this magazine, I think you should run out and buy one right away. It will be available on newstands until December 31 and I believe I may have left one or two copies out there... (I found mine at Barnes and Noble, but my local JoAnn did not have it, FYI)

Happy Stitching!

So, spill...where can we find this magazine cause I'm not having any luck, not even on BHG's website!!!

Kim said...

Hi Michelle, as far as I can tell, MIY does not have a website...but it has been spotted at Target, Walmart, Barnes and Noble, Lowe's and grocery stores so hopefully you can find a copy nearby! You can also purchase it digitally through Zinio (link in my sidebar) :)
