Embroidery Hoop Wall Hanging

Embroidery Hoop Wall HangingMy mom's vintage circle skirt paired up with two of my old fringed T's that were destined for the ragbag. This was a fun project! Not long ago, there was another similar ThriftyFun post with the cloth in the embroidery hoop for adding a little life to a bare wall. This print was so awesome I couldn't resist making it into an "eye catcher" to add some "punch" to my wall!

Mom was so thrifty, a lot of her other circle skirts were made into big dish towels or pillow cases. This one she made into a dust cover for a coat of mine. The fringe was recycled from T-shirts I fringed, but were too stained to deal with. All 3 layers of cloth were a very tight fit in the hoop, it almost didn't fit! I threaded a few beads onto thinner pieces of fringe and added a little green and purple sequin trim and each end has a purple star.

I made the braid from one strip of t-shirt cloth (not sure where the "how to" is right now, ( I checked Instructables, eHow and wikiHow) and glued it to the outside of the hoop, using school glue. The little bit of extra fabric is secured in the back (for now) with shipping tape. As long as it's holding, I have no problem with it!

Tip: Cheater Quilt in Embroidery Hoop

Printed quilt block in embroidery hoop.I love the older craft ideas like this. Mine is really simple. Take some cheater quilt, the kind that looks like it was sewn together, but wasn't, and bind or cut a square out and put in the hoop.

Sometimes, another cool thing to do is to find someones' almost done project, and put a needle and embroidery thread in the work, then in the hoop. It looks like you started it, but when people ask why you didn't finish it, it's a conversation starter.

In a Lola cartoon once, she did a sampler that read "Patience is a Virt..", so you get the funny now you can understand the idea of the unfinished art.

Source: Saw this in a house I "sat" back a few years. Thought of it often. The cheater quilt is up above the computer.

Hoop and Fabric Craft

Hoop and Fabric CraftI made two of these for Valentine's Day with happy penguins marching with hearts on their flippers and the other with dogs and hearts.

For St. Patrick's day I made two with frogs dressed as leprechauns and a pot of gold.

I took glitter paint and embellished the pictures. I hung them in my office during the corresponding holidays and people loved them!

Materials Needed:

  • fabric with design of choice
  • wooden embroidery hoop(s)
  • glue
    I like Aleene's Tacky glue, but Elmer's is good too.
  • matching ribbon
  • scissors

Instructions:

  1. Cut your fabric about two inches larger that the embroidery hoop. Put your design in middle of the hoop.
  2. Take the inner hoop and put a small amount of glue over the outer part of the hoop.
  3. Take the fabric and line it up over the smaller inner hoop.
  4. Take the larger outer hoop and secure it over the fabric and inner hoop. Keep the screw part at the top; this will be your hanging part.
  5. Tighten the screw part making sure that your fabric remains tight.
  6. Let the glue dry for an hour or so and trim off excess material in the back.
  7. Tie a ribbon on the screw part.

Fabric can be so beautiful. It can be used any time any way. Use your imagination!

Happy Crafting!
