Embroidery Hoop art

I hope you are all ok? I thought I would just drop in to show you my latest make and to thank you for all the kind feedback I have received regarding my free baby blanket pattern…The Angelece Baby Blanket

I have really enjoyed playing around with something a bit different to usual, and this is what I came up with. Of course, it had to have a bit of crochet somewhere and these little flowers were just perfect.

I am not the worlds greatest when it comes to sewing, but I do find it quite soothing, if the embroidery floss doesn’t get in a tangle. I did order some cheap embroidery floss to start with…this was a BIG mistake as it split and tangled so easily. Suffice to say the more expensive thread was of a much better quality and made the embroidery a pleasure.

The leaves and flowers are hooked from scraps of cotton and I glued them into position with a hot glue gun, and finished the centres with a tiny white bead.

Finally, I finished my hoop with a circle of mustard felt, which I also glued into position, just to give a tidy finish. It is a small piece of happiness.

I may just make some more, but I think I will keep each one completely unique…I have some other Mama sayings that I would like to stitch.

A Whole Lot of Love Beanie

Thank you for the lovely feedback I have received on my free baby blanket pattern; if you missed it you can find it by clicking on the link.

I had a lovely little hooking session yesterday evening, and this is what came off my hook. I am so in love with these sweet hats and I love the colours too!

I used a lovely little heart applique by petals to picots and my best beanie pattern and Voila!

These beauties are now available to purchase just here too.

So, quite a productive little evening, don’t you think? I love a quick make!

What’s your favourite quick make?
