I had two partners for Round 3 of the Hoopla Swap. This was an OTT-themed hoopla swap - hoops had to be 4" or smaller. I had a lot of fun with it!!
The first hoop (3" diameter) was for a partner who loves Disney, video games and the colors purple and lime green together. With the recent release of Disney's new Wii game, Epic Mickey
, this seemed like a good fit...
The game is set in a sort of Disney netherworld where the tools of choice are paint to cover things and thinner to make the paint disappear, hence the dripping mouse ears.
I tried to do this first on a lime green satin with a knit backing. It was lovely and shimmer-y, but it was terrible
to stitch on. I was also trying to use metallic thread, and the two together were just hopeless. Switched to standard cotton DMC and this silk dupioni and the project went much more smoothly.
