To Be Hooped

I have a bunch of embroidery pieces that I have been, well, procrastinating about. I did turn my skull piece into my purse.

And the Fruity Oaty Bar girls into a pillow (reminder: list pillow in shop).

I think I may just do the rest as wall pieces in the hoop. The crafty bunny is on a silky linen like material and the roses are on silk, which do make better pillows than hoops, but there is not quite enough fabric around the images for that. And if I hoop them, they can always be reworked into something else if someone wants the piece, but in a different form.

Now to decide how to finish them off...paint or wrap or keep the hoop bare? Back it with sewn fabric stretched across or felt or even scrapbook paper stamped & glued on the back? Or maybe a combo of each to see which I like the best :)

probably putting something like a handmade stitched hoop swatch would draw a lot of attention! I would try that in your tilttoo shop! {:-D
