Easter is on it's way!
So... it must be time for a cute wee bit of Easter crafting. I love the trend of hoop art at the moment, for those of you unfamiliar, hoop art uses an embroidery hoop, not just to make the piece but to display it also. So many great projects to make and do.
So, here we go on my Easter hoop art project!
Gather your tools and supplies, you'll need:
1x Embroidery Hoop (I used a 13cm)
1x Square of cotton fabric
1x needle and thread
1x 100% wool felt sheet
1x 2cm wool felt ball
Pins and sharp scissors
The pattern for the little bunny.
+ Use the bunny pattern to cut out a shape in the felt.
+ Pop your fabric into the embroidery hoop and pin on the felt bunny.
+ Sew the bunny onto the fabric using your preferred stitch. I used a running stitch.
+ Sew on the felt ball, you may have to loosen the fabric from the hoop to achieve this,
+ Glue or sew the reverse of the hoop to tidy up the excess fabric. I use a running stitch and pull the fabric together then tie off. You can also glue a circle of felt around the back of the hoop so it looks nice and tidy.
+++Hang your gorgeous hoop art+++
Have fun mixing and matching with colours and fabrics.
Happy crafting and Happy Easter,
I just love these gorgeous little wool balls. They are so much fun and with so many colours available, the craft opportunities are endless.
I have had a few of my lovely customers wonder what to do with them, so I thought I'd pop up a quick tutorial to show you one of the quickest and easiest ways to use them. My DIY Felt Ball Garland.
I hope to put a few more tutorials up so please do subscribe my brand new YouTube channel.
