Yesterday I finished four hoops. I kind of do them on an assembly line. One day I cut out all the fabric, and next I choose what elements I want to use. And so it goes.
I’ve changed my strategy of gluing the vintage images to the back fabric. Now I use pretty decorative pins and pin them on. Then you could take them off and use your own photos of family and such.
I love delving into the big jar of buttons. There’s something so childlike and fun about buttons.
I started a button board on my Pinterest. (I am really loving Pinterest these days! So much inspiration in one place.)
I think of this craft, embroidery hoop art, as something from yesteryear. The embroidery hoops, the doilies I use to create pockets, the vintage ephemera, and of course the buttons and lace I use to hang these up.
What fun it is to create! And with my new setup where I have everything in one small area, it is easy to put all the elements together.
