My partner has received but won't be able to post photos until her parents bring the package to her school. She listed the Wizard of Oz in her interests and the idea was immediate. I had wanted to do a clock and thought that the diptych round would be just perfect for that. Not only do the hoops work well in the theme, but they can stand alone or in other groupings(depending on how her room is arranged).

First is the Tin Man himself.  Just a simple bust with some crayon tinting to add depth. I used a fun fabric that reminded me of the yellow brick road, and an old, worn, metal hoop that resembled aged tin. Maybe I should have made my second hoop an oil can!



This clock was tough. I had the general idea down, but the numbers gave me trouble. Stitching the numerals didn't work because it was too hard to read. Using a marker didn't work because the writing blurred on the felt. I decided just to print out the numbers and glue them onto the fabric. It's not the exact look that I wanted, but it worked for the project. I took an image of the back just to prove it's a real working clock. Most of the stitching is blanket stitch, and the heart is stuffed for that 3D effect.
