A Simple Hoop

Saturday, June 4, 2011

I was flipping through a craft magazine the other day (darn, I don't remember which one!) and saw something similar to this. I thought it was so sweet and I loved how they had used alphabet stamps for the quote. So I made my own version!

I think it's in a 7" hoop, the fabric is linen and the birdie is made from wool felt. It's simple but that's kind of the idea :).

I'm planning on doing more stamped embroidery pieces soon despite the fact that I can't stamp straight. I actually like how the quote lettering turned out a bit wonky. Gives it character!

LOL I thought you didn't stamp it evenly on purpose for exactly that reason: character! :)

I love the stamping the way it is. It looks great! www.paperstarfish.prettyposies.com

This is adorable! I'm desperate to try out some of these hoop art thingies but I only have large hoops! *must buy some small hoops*
I love that the text isn't quite straight, it show's that it's been made with hands and not a machine x
