We love nothing more than planning our summer adventures and this month you too can get in the mood to travel with our sizzling hot July issue, on sale today.
We've all dreamt of owning a hippy-chic campervan and now, thanks to our cheery duo of retro cushions, we can! *swoon*
With all eyes on the capital this summer we couldn't resist paying homage to London with this stylish skyline cushion by Anette Eriksson, but if you're looking forward to escaping the hustle and bustle of city life then perhaps Emily Peacock's uplifting hot air balloon is more your style. Up, up and away!
Don't miss our summer issue (254) - on sale now!
If, like us, you appreciate a spot of retro styling then you're going to love Felicity Hall's rainbow bright sports bags (below). We've made ours into gym bags, but they'd look awesome stretched over some canvas frames.
Then there's Kerry Morgan's oh-so-cool camera case, what a beauty! This Holga-style point and shoot is a must-have for any keen photographer.
Like gardening? Well you've come to the right place because this month we've teamed-up with illustrator Jules Miller to bring you this adorable set of gardening birds (below), how tweet! There's everything from a handy notebook cover to dinky herb pots to help inspire you to go green...
You'll find the usual selection of more delicate designs in this months issue, including Angela Poole's quirky apron design (below, left) - perfect for any kitchen queen!
Maria Diaz has come-up with some royal honey designs (below, centre) featuring pretty bumble bees and Durene Jones has gone all colourful with her set of summer sentiment cards (below, right).
We're all about colour this month so dig out your brightest threads and get stuck in!
