Welcome to issue 23 of CraftWorld Magazine, the only magazine dedicated to bringing free inspiration to sewists, papercrafters, knitters and crocheters every single month! This issue is packed with projects you’ll love to make, including Strawberry die-cut delights (page 8), a Love Me Knot headband (page 33), a fab knitted Clangers finger puppet (page 48), some beautiful Shine Bright cards (page 52) and a sewing masterclass (page 56). We have makes for all skill levels, each one designed to brighten your day!

If you’d rather just sit back with a cup of tea and a slice of cake and have a good read, there’s plenty to choose from too. I loved reading the Top 10 Toymaking Tips (page 36). And don’t miss our interview with Crafter’s TV’s Leann Chivers who takes us behind the scenes of a craft company that we love (page 22).

I hope you enjoy this issue, and if you do, please share it with your friends!
Happy crafting.
