This week I’ve been concentrating on embroidery hoop art. All week my ankle has been more painful and problematic. I got tired of going into my office/craft room, and bringing supplies into the living room where it is warmer and I can watch CNN.
So after many trips back and forth yesterday to get two hoops done, I decided to do this. I had this empty vintage suitcase doing nothing. In my house, since it’s so small, things have to be utilized. So I came up with a mini craft room in a suitcase.
I decided which things I used the most to make my hoop art, and possibly some collages. That was buttons, various types of glue, ribbon, stamp pads, etc. I picked the colors I felt I used the most.
I have utilized my textile drawer box to put vintage images and quotes and scrap paper in. Which is right across from the table I’m using, which is right next to the trunk with the suitcase.
My various sized doilies are in this box I decoupaged years ago.
This is one of two hoop art projects I did yesterday. I am hand sewing what needs to be sewn, because I can’t use the sewing machine with my ankle.
Here is the other. I’d appreciate it if you’d tell me what you like or don’t like about these hoop art projects. As I may start selling them in my Etsy store.
So you see the space I work and the supplies I need to use are right next to my table. Much less walking around!
A good idea for being able to work in a certain room and not having your work materials spread all over the house. And just close the suitcase when you’re done.
