I wanted to do something for our pet (Tyler). Often we decorate our home for different holidays, this time and for now on, we will include Tyler's corner, with a little art of his own! This can be made with very little and can be interchangeable with different fabric pieces and it is washable.

Total Time: 30 min.

Yield: 1

Supplies:

  • embroidery hoop
  • fabric
  • scissors
  • craft paint and foam brush
  • ribbon to hang
  • hook or Command strip for wall

Steps:

  1. Your hoop comes in 2 pieces that are screwed together. Loosen screw and pop out the inner hoop.
  2. Ad

  3. I decided that I wanted my hoop painted, you can leave it natural if you choose to.
  4. Allow to dry completely after painting.
  5. Use the inner hoop as a template for cutting your fabric and cut about 1 inch bigger around than the hoop.
  6. Take the fabric and place it centered on top of inner hoop.
  7. Ad

  8. With the outside hoop, make sure the screw is positioned at the top of your artwork, with the screw pre-loosened, press the top/outer hoop down. Tighten.
  9. Flip over and trim off the excess fabric around the edges.
  10. The top where it is screwed will be used also for hanging your pet art. Add a bow if desired.
  11. Hang near your pet's food dish or sleeping area.

My mom's vintage circle skirt paired up with two of my old fringed Ts 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!

My mom had great taste in clothes.

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

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.
