Hey, trick or treaters. To celebrate Halloween, I have a happy, Hoop-La treat for you in the not-at-all-spooky form of Mollie from Wild Olive.
NAME: Mollie Johanson
BLOG: Wild Olive
NOTES: There can’t be many places on the internet sweeter than Mollie’s blog, Wild Olive. Packed with adorable embroidery patterns and projects for stitchers at every level, it’s the perfect blend of inspirational and practical. Not a stitcher? No problem. Mollie also offers a whole range of printables, from cute cards to pretty paper chains. Or, if you’d like to change your non-stitcher status (go on – I dare you), Embroidery Basics is a fantastic series of free tutorials, ideal for both beginners and improvers.
THREE FAVOURITE POSTS:
- As a firm advocate (and practioner) of adapting patterns to suit your skills, requirements and the supplies to hand, I loved reading Mollie’s post on the subject, especially as it’s full of useful advice for anyone who’s a little less confident about making those kind of changes.
- Ninja cats. Yep. Ninja. Cats. The awesomeness is built right in, no further questions, your honour.
- I love the beautiful simplicity of the hexagon accessories in this post. Mix up the colours and patterns for endless, personalised variations and the loveliest of handmade gifts.
