Mollie Makes Floral 'Let Love Bloom' Hoop Kit

Regular readers will know that every month I challenge myself to make the Mollie Makes magazine cover gift. I’ve subscribed since it first came out and have had a drawer full of unopened kits – but no more! I’ve been making more time for grown up crafting and I love to make the kits and hopefully try something new.

Mollie Makes Floral ‘Let Love Bloom’ Hoop Kit from Issue 87 was designed by Amanda Bryde of Brynn & Co. It contained a plastic embroidery hoop, printed cotton fabric, embroidery threads and a sewing needle. I love a sewing kit but thought this was a little similar to the Scandi embroidery project which came with Issue 76 not that long ago.

Pre-printed panels are fun to stitch because you can make it up as you go along. There were instructions for different stitches but I just did what I wanted, stitching the different flowers around the letters.

It looked a little daunting but soon came together over a few evenings watching Netflix. I loved the colours of the threads which all complimented each other well. It felt a little early to be stitching something for Valentine’s Day but I suppose you can never start too early!

When I had finished I did a running stitch around the loose fabric at the back, pulling it tight and knotting the thread to finish it off. It was definitely good to start the year off with a little stitching. Fingers crossed for more!
