I'm hooped!

How many of you are totally addicted to pinterest? I swear I could look at pins all day and night long. I'm loving everything I see and pinning like a crazy woman! 

So lately i've been seeing lots of embroidery hoop crafts happening out there in blogland. So I thought I'd try my hand at it too. Let me tell you this is the easiest project ever. I used up all my scrap fabric and purchased some old hoops at a second hand store. Basically the project cost me about $5.00, everything I had on hand! Love when that happens!!

So this is how my little hoop project turned out...
Don't mind any of the spiderwebs you might find...

This is a funny little wall in my spare bedroom. I actually had a dresser on that wall but decided to rearrange all the furniture in the room after I put the hoops up... So now I might switch it up to the other side of the room. We'll see how ambitious I am. But for now, i'm just loving it! Every time I walk into the room they make me smile.


  1. I love this! I have about 8 on part of the wall in our hallway. I'm kicking myself for not buying more when I saw them at a thriftstore the other day! Hopefully they'll still be there when I go back again!

  2. Great idea. Thats a great way to use beautiful scraps and to show off lots of color.

  3. I am hooked on pinterest too! I have been wanting to make these fabric hoops for awhile now so I can save a few bits and pieces of some of my favorite fabrics, only I can't figure out where I would hang them. Yours look great!

    If you have time to pop by my blog over the weekend I'd be honoured if you could link up this post to my weekly Pinning & Singing Pinterest Party. I have also created a "Pinning Bloggers Master List" that you might be interested in joining.
