I'm having a lot of fun with my embroidery hoops!
I love doing the embroidery, but this was also fun to do a little patchwork display to put inside.
I almost have enough to decorate the toy room wall, but not quite, so there will be other fun embroidery hoop arts on the way.
I was surprised how quickly I was able to put this one together (much quicker than actually doing embroidery in that hoop). :)
I cut out the squares while watching a show one evening with my hubby, then put it together during some "quiet time" one afternoon.
First, I sewed the squares together into strips and arranged them how I wanted them as shown below.
Secondly, I sewed these strips together to make one flat piece of fabric. Then I ironed it smooth and flat.
Then, I placed them in the embroidery hoop and was finished. Easy peasy.
There is something so simple and sweet, so homey and playful about patchwork. I think it is perfect displayed in the circular embroidery hoops!
