I finished this hoop today...





In the picture I based it on they are snuggled up underneath a big fluffy blanket so I tried to replicate it by sewing a fluffy wool onto the fabric. I also tried using wax crayons to colour after seeing the information at the top of the board for the first time.

I can't decide whether I'm happy with it or whether it looks like one of the portraits from badtattoos.com but I'm going to show it to my sister (and the kids' mum) tomorrow so she can decide!
