With the interest in crafts and everything homemade reaching a fever pitch in the UK, there are about a zillion new magazines cropping up. I got a trial subscription (five issues for £5, can't complain!) to Cloth magazine, which has been around for about a year now.
After two issues, I have to say it's not for me. It's less about sewing than it is about "customising" - sorry I mean UPCYCLING - your wardrobe. You know - add some lace to a tee shirt, add some military styling to a plain jacket, an "edgy" update to a denim shirt by adding some studs, customise your wellies, that kind of thing. It's probably a great magazine for a fashion-obsessed teenager who is just dipping into the ideas of sewing and similar crafts. They do have a few "from scratch" type projects but they don't have very detailed instructions.
Now I just have to figure out how to cancel my subscription before the trial runs out!
