Show us your hoop guts!

We’re calling for #hoopguts submissions on social media. Send in pictures of the back of your embroidery work and get it featured on the Mollie Makes blog. Find out more about the hashtag and how to submit your pictures…

That’s right, we’d like to see your hoop butts, or guts as they’re commonly referred to on Instagram. Why the back of your embroidery? We’ve always appreciated the unpolished, raw charm the back of embroidery work reveals and we’d like to celebrate the unplanned, creative mess of hoop guts!

So flip round your embroidered wall art, dig out your unfinished hoop designs and send in your #hoopguts pictures via social media. Don’t forget to tag us, too so we can see them! The best ones will be added to this post every week. Have fun! Featured image is the Mollie Makes 69 flamingo cover star by Senorita Lylo
