I got super into embroidery for about 2 weeks. Just long enough to collect a ton of hoops in different sizes, but not long enough to actually use them for their intended purpose. I just love knitting too much, it’s kind of my go-to when I need to keep my hands busy. Lucky for me, there have been a ton of craft projects popping up that use embroidery hoops in creative ways, so I can still feel like I’m getting use out of my huge collection without starting an embroidery project.
Though it’s a simple enough concept, I love the idea of using embroidery hoops as frames. They’re easy to hang, and have a cute rustic charm to them. This tutorial is perfect for the season and I love that it uses a sheer fabric.
