Fabric Embroidery Rings

Posted by on Jul 17, 2012 in Daisy's room, fabric, yard sale | 25 comments

We are safe and sound here in NYC!
We had a great day of travel and we are exhausted!

I finished a few projects before I left the Boro. . .

Here is one for Daisy’s room.

This is a super simple project that is going to get a lot of fun prints in Daisy’s room!

I have been collecting these hoops from yard sales and thrift.

I have paid anywhere from 10-50 cents.

I found some great shams at Goodwill for $4.

(They had never been used!)

Then, we ordered the duvet cover from Pottery Barn Teen for $25 (marked down from $100!)

We took those 2 pieces to the fabric store and bought tiny amounts of fabric that look great together!

I took the rings in the store to know how much fabric to buy.

Some of them only required 1/8 of a yard and others needed more.

I secured the fabric in the ring.

I cut off the excess.

I opted to use Tacky glue instead of hot glue.

(I want to keep my fingertips!)

I traced the ring and cut paper to back it with.

We plan on grouping these together on one of her walls.

I think this is hitting right on our theme – “vintage yet cute!”

We have a lot of this fabric left. . .

My wheels are spinning about what to do with it!

Life to the full to you!

  7. Love this but am curious as to why you backed them with paper.

  8. I was just contemplating doing something like this when I spotted a bunch of embroidery rings at the thrift shop! Love your choice of fabrics! In fact, this would be perfect for our Crazy about Color link party on July 31!

  9. These are fabulous. I absolutely love your fabric choices.

  10. I love how cute the hoops turned out. I have been working on a few hoops for house mostly embroidery stitching. I may have to add a few cute fabric hoops in to the mix. 🙂

  11. Very cute and vintage. I can’t wait to see her room reveal every element you’ve shown so far has been awesome!

  14. These are darling. Thanks for sharing the great idea. Patti

  15. These will be so cute on the wall. I used to frame all kinds of things in embroidery hoops–it tickles me to see that this has come back into style!

  16. I saw something like this on Pinterest the other day and fell in love with the idea. I just love that chicken fabric and the way your colors go together. Hope I can try this idea soon!

  17. I’ve done this in my office. I didn’t back them thought I might have to go back and do that now. 🙂 I did have a problem with getting them to stay flat on the wall. They want to bow out. Any suggestions?

  18. Came over from Overflowing. I collect hoops so I have an over abundance of them. I have been thinking about using them this way, but I am picky about the backs of things. Love the way you finished the backs of these. thanks for the idea.

  19. Daisy is going to love them! Really like the material you choose and are complimentary to each other. I love fabric shopping, but it takes me forever to pick them. Does Daisy invite any guests over? Thanks for sharing your creative inspiration with Sunday’s Best – you help to make it a great par.tay!

  20. I’ve always loved fabric displayed in embroidery hoops. Lovely fabric selection too. 🙂
