There is just something about embroidery hoops.
Although I have never used them as intended, I am fascinated by them.
So this morning, when the crafty itch got too bad to ignore any longer, I went to the fabric shop and came home with
some of the wooden beauties.
This, btw, is a typical loooong German sentence. There must be some way to say the same thing in English, but I
can't come up with it right now.
Might have something to do with Frida the rooster standing next to me crowing loudly:
But I am getting side -tracked here.
Some time ago I saw embroidery hoops used as picture frames here and decided to do something similar.
You will need a computer, a printer, a photo you like, t-shirt transfer paper, an iron, embroidery hoops, fabric glue, some
wool, and some colorful fabric.
Print your picture onto the transfer foil and then iron it onto a piece of white fabric.
Find more info on how to use transfer paper here.
Cut your fabric with the picture on into a shape you like, and put the colorful fabric into your embroidery hoops:
Glue the printed picture onto the fabric with fabric glue:
If you want to, embroider the picture using different colored wool,and then cut the fabric close to the embroidery hoop,
so it doesn't show from the front:
I am thinking of doing one for every member of our household, animals included:
Have a fabulous Thursday, I am on my way now to pick up my computer, which seems to be working again (a new hard
drive and a lot of hard cash later....).
Hugs to you,
P.s: I am linking to these lovely parties.
