What's inspiring me today ...

Each day I come across amazing projects of every kind. If I really like something I usually think to myself, "I could make that!", which is how my craft corner has ended up looking like a bomb went off.

My latest "I can make that" idea is all about embroidery hoop projects. I love the idea of embroidering a unique picture or phrase that I have designed myself. I'm not 100% sure how to go about this yet, so I will need to look around online for a tutorial for tips.

The next embroidery hoop project I'd love to try, which obviously is a whole lot easier, is to locate some pretty vintage fabric, put it in the embroidery hoop, embellish, and use as a wall decoration. 

My plan is to create a combination of styles (fabric and embroidered) and sizes, and to decorate a wall in my home with a grouping that I put together. I've recently pinned a bunch of photos of groupings that I love. If you love them too feel free to pin away!

What do you think about this trend?

Is there anyone out there who has recently fell in love with this like I have? 

How about anyone who has recently attempted to create something like these?  

I'd love to hear any tips or suggestions you may have :))

Have a great day!

  1. I remember my mom doing these hoop embroideries when we were little. She would spend hours on them, but they brought her a lot of joy.

    I love this trend, but haven't jumped on the bandwagon. As pretty as they are, the design of them just doesn't go with the flow of our house. I think these would be gorgeous in a country/farm type house!

    Good luck with your project. I hope you post pics up when you complete them!

  2. I remember doing this years ago (probably before you were born) and it added some interest to a guest bedroom. Don't put them anywhere where there's a lot of humidity as the fabric will stretch and then sag. Otherwise, cute idea.

  3. Theresa, My house is kinda rustic I guess. I think depending on the type of fabric or print I could find a place for them. If not I could sell them on Etsy :))

    Heather, Thanks for the tip on the sagging fabric. Would never have thought of that on my own!

  4. The hoops are coming back...
