For someone who doesn’t even remotely know how to embroider, I sure do a lot of crafter projects with embroidery hoops. First the paint chip mobile, now a little embroidery hoop wall art. The nursery walls were feeling a bit nekkid. And I just happened to have a few (ok six) hoops laying around. And enough pink fabric scraps from all the absurd dress making going on to make a little art for the nursery.
I took six fabrics out of the scrap heap, pulled them taught inside an embroidery hoop, trimmed the backing of the fabric to about 1/2” past the hoop and then busted out the hot glue gun and glued the extra fabric to the back of the hoop. I suppose the hot glue gunning wasn’t really necessary, but any reason to bust that gun out, and I’m all over it. Plus, I just felt that while the fabric didn’t really need to be secured with glue, it was a good way to make sure you didn’t see any extra fabric once the hoops were hung on the wall.
I’d love to say it was the beauty of this project that had me digging thru my stash to create it. But it was more of a desire for a cheap solution for a blank nursery wall. And a few random embroidery hoops + some leftover fabric scraps = cheapo wall art. And I’m digging anything cheapo these days. Especially when it includes draping some fabric on the wall.
