Introducing Koel Magazine by Bloesem


Our longtime blog friend, Irene of Bloesem asked us recently to become Ambassadors to her newest venture and kickstarter, KOEL, a new publication where yarn crafting and interior decor collide.  We are excited to support her and have asked her and her team to guest post for us next week which we're really looking forward to! Firstly though introducing KOEL Magazine.

The magazine, Bloesem's latest passion project, is going to be touching on everything from pattern inspiration to decorative knitting, crochet, weaving and macramé, and interior decor.  Celebrating their love for crafting with yarns! KOEL is a publication where yarn crafting and interior decor perfectly collide.

With 144 pages of pages of inspiration to create a stylish home with yarns, alongside other crafts involving flowers, food, ceramics and other handmade crafts, there's definitely something for all craft-lovers. Impeccably curated through captivating photography, KOEL reveals beautifully styled spaces —homes filled with handmade yarn designs.

Bloesem team member, Charmaine tells us, "Look forward to easy-to-follow steps guiding you to re-create them, but just enough so you can still feel free to get really creative and make it truly your own. Think of it as a modern recipe book! You can also expect interviews with various crafters and makers chatting about their journey and showcasing their own works.. It's all very inspirational and makes for a truly delightful read".  (Above photo: One of the photos and projects for KOEL magazine's first issue, making these easy crochet baskets. In the debut issue they will share with you the patterns and instructions).
