Fiber Art: Double Hoop Wall Hanging w/ Circular Weaving


I had so much fun with my last project / first Embroidery Hoop Fiber project that I couldn't wait to do another one. Michaels helped me out by having some yarn on clearance. Since I already had the hoops and other yarn on hand, I spent $6 for some quirky chunky yarn that will make a few projects and happened to match a painting I'd done for our bedroom. 

Supplies
  • Embroidery Hoops 2 Sizes
  • Yarn
  • Glue Gun

Part of this project involved Circular Weaving, something I stumbled upon after looking around Pinterest after my last project. Oh boy...gonna be addicting! Here's the video I used to learn how to "warp the hoop" (ooh don't I sound fan-cy?)

Once that was done, I threaded the yarn over and under the sections of the "warped hoop" until I felt like changing yarns. I made sure to always end on the reverse side, tied on a new color, resumed. 



I went all the way to the end but you don't have to. 

For the bigger hoop, I tied the yarn as shown and then glued the smaller hoop inside the bigger hoop and tied a couple of strands on the smaller hoop's hardware. I had a rolled felt rose leftover from the other piece so I plopped it on top. 


Sun glare washed out the painting. 




May just go start another one...

Easy Boho Embroidery Hoop Wall Hanging


I've seen these in a few boutiques and thought (like all Makers do) "I can make that". So I did! For some of us old enough to remember fiber and macrame from the 70's, everything old is new again right? 

Supplies: 
  • Embroidery Hoop , your choice of size. They're inexpensive so buy a few !
  • Yarn of choice. I went with a funky textured grey and cream
  • Felt 
  • Glue gun and glue


I bought the chunky gray and cream at JoAnn's and had the other yarns in my stash. I thought I might use all of them but ended up just using the grey and cream. I wasn't going for measured perfection so I roughly measured 3 strands of yarn for each "knot" , folded in half, and then pulled through the loop to attach to the embroidery hoop. I did 9 "knots" each of the cream and grey and made them a little shorter working from the center out. 


I had some coordinating felt in my stash so made some rolled roses and then cut some leaves freehand using pinking shears. Attached to the embroidery hoop w/ hot glue. Easy peasy!



Et, voila!

Easy Paper Hoop Project : Halloween Edition


I was meeting a couple of girlfriends for Brunch and I always like to bring a little girlfriend gift. I whipped these up quickly because my week hadn't gone as planned and I didn't even take a pic of the "final final" so not even sure I should post but...

I was inspired by this Christmas idea from The How To Home

and have these planned for Christmas. But I thought "hey, I could do something easy peasy for Halloween" to take my friends. 

Supplies: 
  • 3" Wood Embroidery Hoops 
  • Paper of choice
  • Vinyl decal ( I cut mine using my Silhouette but you could use pre-made or use stickers or diecuts!)
  • Embellishments 



This was a great way to use some papers from prior Halloween cards. I chose two sheets , traced the outer hoop, and cut out the circles. 



Glue to the back of your hoop using hot glue.  I chose a Halloween themed image from the Silhouette Library and added each of their initials in the center. 


Applied the vinyl to the center of the hoops and voila! 

I finished these ( bad blogger...forgot to take a picture!!) with a black organza ribbon bow at the top and tied a Halloween themed enamel charm with black and white baker's twine. And me, being me, added a few clear sparkly rhinestones o the broom and monogram. Super easy. Super fast. And I think super cute!!
