This issue is full of the joys of spring, packed with pretty floral fabrics, Easter bunnies and a sprinkling of April showers!

The Portland Top is a cute, flirty top that will brighten your spring wardrobe, showcasing a delicate floral print it has a flattering back neck tie to add that touch of elegance. Our Easter Bunny Garland features sweet rabbit faces and quirky carrots to make a playful Easter decoration that will have you hopping with happiness this month and the lovable Bunny Cushion cleverly uses pre-loved fabrics to make a comfy cushion for your home. For more spring inspired makes, why not have a little fun mixing your raindrop colours in the machine embroidered April Showers Hoop Art – a great and quick little project just perfect for a rainy afternoon! The adorable Girls Hooded Dress is a practical children’s make inspired by April showers which looks fab teamed with a pair of wellies! The very stylish and useful Garden Caddy is an ideal make for those who enjoy days spent pottering in the garden and the chic Hip Bag is a fantastic store for all those walking essentials in a perfectly sized bag.

Plus, we have some super tips and techniques for you this month - Tilly Walnes from The Great British Sewing Bee shows you a few top tips to stop your machine playing up and Mrs Bowden shares her wisdom on inserting a set in sleeve. We Meet Big Bird Little Bird owner Liz Norwood Clark to find out more about the inspirational story behind her stunning textile sculptures, plus we have a smashing Guess How Much I Love You Competition with your chance to win bundles of the new fabric from Clothworks.
