for the hoopla 4- diptych round, I was determined to use my hoops in a new, different and very creative way.....my partner jemimah received and posted pictures in the gallery.....all of the comments have been GREAT.... and the questions about how I actually constructed my hoop within a hoop lead me to ...

HERE, I WILL JUST SHOW YOU ......

there are pictures of two different projects in this little tutorial because I didn't remember to take shots of all the stages in either one.... hope it doesn't confuse anyone... Wink

fabric and two hoops


put the smaller hoop on the fabric backwards...like this


flip it over and put the larger hoop on, placing the smaller hoop where you want the hole.....


flip it back over again, draw a circle about a half to 3/4 of an inch away from the smaller hoop and then cut on the line.... after the circle is cut out cut slits around it every half inch or so, almost to the edge of the hoop ...but not quite!!


on the back side of your hoop.... take craft glue ( i used quick dry tacky glue) and small binder clips.... doing one at a time, put some glue on the hoop, stretch the flap of fabric over the side and place a binder clip on it to secure


wait till the glue is dry..... with the glue I used I only had to wait a half hour or so... take the clips off.... and there ya have it...... your hoop within a hoop!!!


thanks for looking!!..... if you have any questions.... FEEL FREE TO ASK!!!

Thanks for the tute! There are so many fun things you could do with that technique... I would imagine you could do multiple little hoops even...

Looking for a vintage magazine (1974 - 1978) that has a fabric nativity set w/ people and animals. An example: http://www.craftster.org/pictures/showphoto.php?photo=440861&ppuser=143144.

There is nothing on earth more entertaining than watching a pack of half-grown puppies playing in snow for the very first time.
