Back again with another first for me--an altered embroidery hoop. It really came together rather quickly once I got started.
First, I began by giving the hoop two coats of white paint to help cover up any wood that might show through. Next, I stretched a piece of pretty embroidered fabric between the hoops, trimming the excess close to the edge. Using a sweet vintage image from the Internet, I glued a delicate trim around the photo. Then, began the layering of all the lacy trims, appliques and fabric flowers. Did you notice the pretty bird by Prima at the lower right corner of the image?
There you have it! All done using glue--no sewing required. I purchased an extra hoop so I may whip up another one soon.
Thank you so much for stopping by. I appreciate your sweet comments. It's a crisp day here today and I love it! Have a wonderful week ahead!
