Hoop Art Inspiration

Something I have wanted to do for a long while now is to try my hand at Embroidery. I've decided 2014 will be the year that I make my own wall of 'Hoop Art'. If you are unsure as to what that is, it is simple wooden embroidery hoops with just pretty fabrics or embroidered designs sewn onto them. It's a great way to add interest and colour to a bare wall!

I have seen so many beautiful hoop embroidery ideas online so when I received a Hobby Craft voucher for Christmas I knew exactly what I wanted to spend it on. I have been looking on Pinterest for inspiration.

Aren't they lovely? If we ever have a little girl I can imagine so many pretty hoop designs for her bedroom. Until then I want to make some pretty hoops for my own bedroom. This will be the first time doing Embroidery so I think i'll start with something simple like the 'Be Happy' hoop on the top right. Do you like it? 

Fingers crossed I will enjoy this craft. I can foresee some cosy nights in front of the TV doing a little stitching. Exciting! Yes - I am a complete old lady at heart ; )

Have you ever embroidered before?

  1. I love the 'Be happy' idea; in fact, I love them all! What a great idea. I always seem to spot embroidery hoops and would love to give that, and cross stitch a go at some point this year. Keep us posted on how you get on! Leanne (@knitmeacake) x
