Embroidery Hoop by Paula Fiihr

Saturday, August 15, 2020

Good morning! Paula Fiihr here and today I am sharing a fun project using Bloom Street and an embroidery hoop! It’s a fun way to combine a mini bulletin board and a layout that allows you to switch out pictures or sentiments.
I wanted to make one for my hubby, so I used the Flower Heart cut file and cut it from white cardstock. I filled in a few of the flowers and leaves using embroidery floss. The other flowers were fussy cut from the blue flower sheet in the 12x12 Paper Pad. I found this pink fabric at Hobby Lobby that is almost a direct match to the pink polka dots from this line! Score! To assemble the hoop, first I cut one piece of cork and one piece of foam board that fit into the inside of the hoop. I hot glued them together and hot glued them into the inside hoop. Next, I laid the fabric over this and put the top hoop on. Some pom pom trim completed the hoop. Then the Flower Heart was attached with fabric glue. I stitched around the ‘you make me happy’ piece which is from Paper 17.

I added a couple hearts I punched from scraps and a few more flower pieces before glueing it all down. On a bulb pin, I made a fun charm with a Flower Charm and a few things from my stash that fit my hubby. Finally I put a few dots with Nuvo Drops to add a little pop in the flowers. And it is done! I love how versatile embroidery hoops are. Use them for gifts, decor, memory keeping, or happy mail. Can’t wait to see how you use yours! If you have any questions please let me know. Have a lovely day

  2. You've made such a pretty treasure! I bet your hubby was happily surprised! I do have a few hoops. I wanted to do some tiny embroidery scenes. I also bought a cute book of ideas that shows a whole bunch of stitches. Now I need to get busy. Thanks for inspiring lovely 🥰❤️
