Lately I’ve become intriqued with embroidery hoop art. Judy has made some beautiful ones. So I thought I’d try my hand at it.
I tried sewing with my Singer Featherweight the day before, and aggravated some tendon above my ankle. So I hand sewed this. The only hand sewing I did was the script material pocket to the Osnaberg background, the brown trim to the pocket, and the felt flower and button.
I will hang it on the wall some place, most likely. I can do that with the bow at the top I worked into the screw that tightens the hoop.
I hot glued the vintage images, the doily, and the buttons on. Does everyone burn the tips of their fingers with a hot glue gun? There must be a strategy to avoid this.
This was a fun project. I may make some to sell. I like collage art on any medium. In the coming year, I’ve decided I want to dabble more in creating things. Judy is rubbing off on me.
Have you tried embroidery hoop art yet?
