I made these two hoops as Christmas presents.  Both are Urban Threads patterns which I love!

Maneki Neko for my Grandfather and his wife on (or in..? neither really make sense) a 7" hoop wrapped in red and white ribbon.  Backstitch, satin stitch and french knots were all used.
The fabric is linen from the remnants bin at Joann's and sadly, this was the last of it  Sad.


Autumn Tree from my Grandmother in a 6" hoop wrapped in red and white ribbon.  This piece is all backstitch and the fabric was a fat quarter.

Thanks for looking!  Cheesy

Wow, the finishing on the hoops looks great - as does the stitching!
I never thought to use fat quarters for projects - what a smart idea!

Thanks!  Smiley  The only problem with doing this, that I've found, is the fabric is thin and your knots and thread will show through.  I either double up the fabric, or place a piece of felt behind it to make the fabric more opaque!

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.
