Girly Hoops

Pin It

Inspired by Ashley (always), I picked up a bag of assorted embroidery hoops at the thrift store.  
I had wanted to try these for awhile, but they are a little pricey new, 
so I didn't get around to it until the giant bag of them crossed my path :)

I used all scrap materials using a base of blue cotton (these were from old curtains in T's baby nursery....sniff sniff...) 
and some scrap lace. 

This is one of the simpler ones...
On top I used grey fleece for the flowers and various little notions to decorate.  
This is the perfect project to just indulge your pretty whims.  
You can be as girly as you want and these are very much in the NOT-useful category.  They're just pretty :)

I think these monogrammed babies might be my favorites...

I left the lace off some and used zippers and little scrapbooking metal letters 
with some rolled fabric flowers.

I used real branches and little fake flowers cut off of ugly plastic green stems.

Aren't they just so girly???
