Hoop art has been pretty trendy lately.
People have whole Pinterest boards dedicated to it. I guess it is because you can find something to put into a hoop not matter what style your home is.
It can be as simple as pretty pieces of fabric hooped up and hung together . . .
. . . or more intricate designs using stitching, patchwork, and applique.
I recently picked up a pack of 6 wooden hoops at a thrift shop. I paid less than $3.00. Obviously the person pricing these coveted items has no idea about their current trendiness!
My plan was to turn at least 3 of these hoops into art for my daughter's bedroom makeover.
I shared how I made this hoop out of an well-loved piece of clothing HERE.
For a second hoop I stitched this Matroyska doll out of some pretty pastel threads.
Once she was hooped up, I glued on a ruffle of pink crepe paper to add some texture and size to the hoop.
For a third hoop, I gathered some pink and blue fabrics . . .
. . . which I turned into hexagons.
I stitched them all together. . . and
into the hoop went my pretty, pastel patchwork.
I edged this hoop with a length of delicate lace given to me by my husband's grandmother.
And up on the wall they went!
Slowly her newly painted walls are filling with some home-made love.
My daughter loves that so many of the things in her bedroom are "one-of-a-kinds."
Original - just like her!
Sunshine to you all,
