Nuno Magazine : Rustle

Today is the first day of Summer! Huzaa! The weather has been amazing for all sorts of things like T-ball games, family picnics and gardening. But when it rains it pours right? And sometimes it is just too darn hot and sunny (SPF 700 anyone?) to be outside. So you know what I like to do then? Make pretty things. You too? Well then, you will love the digital magazine Nuno then.

For those of you unfamiliar with Nuno magazine it is a seasonal digital format (PDF only) magazine created by the talented sister duo Elizabeth and Rachel Abernathy. Nuno focuses on crafts and art created from recycled and found materials.Some of my favourite examples fromt his issue are:
This curvy clutch made from recycled linen.

And these gorgeous water colour butterflies made from recycled book pages.

Some of my favourite past projects include:

This knitted fern pillow (Pattern included in issue) from the premier issue fall 2010. Made from from recycled yarn. 

These beautiful "kokeshi doll inspired finger puppets" from the winter issue titled Shades of Gray had my gears turning. 

The latest issue Rustle is guaranteed not to disappoint. With projects like this beautiful crocheted Irish rose purse.
And at $3.75 how can you resist this 95 page ad free, independently published, beautifully photographed periodical? It's a steal! But for those of you who haven't the dollars to spare check out the three previews below complete with projects.
