This week I have altered an embroidery hoop. I have created a baby girl layout. Very soon I will be getting a new granddaughter and wanted to make a beautiful piece for my daughter to hang in the babies room.
I painted the hoop with 2 coats of white gesso and then added pattern paper to a piece of lightweight chipboard for the backing. I inked the edges of the hoop with distress ink.
I then added some box pleated trim and a pearl trim to the outside edge of the hoop. I created a space for a 4x6 photo in the center.
The chipboard pieces I used are from the Baby Girl Clothesline Set.
I took the baby dress and painted it with light pink acrylic paint and inked the edges with distress ink. I then added some lace to the bottom of the dress along with some trim and pearl trim. I popped this up with foam squares so that the photo can go under it.
I then added some pattern paper to the baby booties and some crochet trim to the top of them. I also inked these with pattern paper.
To finish off the hoop I added some flower sprays and seam binding.
I hope you like what I have created!
