Wimbledon is just around the corner, and we’re feeling the sporty vibe this month. Check out Simone Francis’ stylish sporty tee – it’s an easy top to make and a grand first garment to have a go at. If raising a glass of Pimms at the same time as juggling your strawberries and cream is more your workout style, however, we have plenty of other makes to get you in the mood for summer. Eleonora’s Tunisian trims are über-cool, and Heather Gibbs’ diamond blanket is perfect for summer picnics.
Mind you, if all this sport and sunshine is a bit much, there’s nothing quite like sitting down with a cup of tea with your magazine and a bit of crochet. And every good cup of tea needs a good biscuit too, just like our adorable Jammy Dodger tape measure – it comes as a free kit with the print edition (the pattern is included in the digital edition too) – just be careful not to dunk it!
