The second issue of stitch arrived in early May and I love it just as much as the first issue.
My only complaints with the magazine is that I wish there were more projects, that I hate to wait until October for the next issue, and that I wish there were instructions for the cute bowl/birdnest on page 31.
My favorite articles were "all about thread" because I learned what thread to use on jeans, "Liberty for all" for teaching me a bit more about Liberty fabrics, "print me" about different fabric printing methods, and "the whir and power of making" about the Make Workshop for its beautiful inspiration board photo.
My favorite projects: Amy Karol's super creative Monogrammed Pillow, Kevin Kosbab's modern-styled E-ticket wallet, and Malka Dubrawsky's Pi Pillow. I also loved the dress patterns, but with my skirt pattern problems from the last issue, I probably won't be daring enough to try those.
stitch is a beautiful magazine that I'm sure I'll keep forever (rather than tearing out the projects I like best) to flip through its well-designed and inspiring pages.
