Embroidery Hoop Art

 Embroidery hoops are inexpensive, $.50-1.50 each.
And this is a great way to either preserve the remnants of a favorite fabric or get rid of your scrap pile.

I got the whole family involved on this one.
My poor husband, he really hates doing art projects.

The kids once again loved picking through my scrap piles and pulling things out.
Just like they did with the Hot Air Balloons! 

All 4 of the girls picked a chevron for their background.
My son went with something more "boy".

It was really fun watching them learn to stitch.
My son's little tongue was out the side of his mouth in concentration.   
We used large needles to help little hands. 
Even his little hands could manage long, straight stitches!
They all took this project rather seriously and worked very hard.




Even the babies helped daddy pull stitches through.
I LOVE the way they turned out.
Flowers, dinosaurs, hearts, ladybugs, and stars.
How often do those go together?

  3. So cute and I love that it got everyone involved. The grouping hanging together on the wall is just great! My girls made a few embroidery projects when they were young, but we never finished them to hang them up. How special for them to be able to see their artwork displayed.
