I was flipping through magazines at the bookstore the other day and saw a hoop similar to this. I wish I could remember the name of the magazine Undecided. Anyway, I really liked how they had used stamps on the hoop instead of stitched letters. I thought it looked nice and also, what a time saver!!

Here's my version! I used linen fabric, alphabet stamps with a permanent ink pad, embroider floss and wool felt for the bird. I didn't intentionally make the lettering so wonky but I'm okay with it turning out that way.





Thanks for looking!

Oh thanks! You should definitely try it. It's really easy! I did a few practice stampings first. 

I thought someone stole your ostrich pic but now I see it's still you, just with a new name Smiley.

Love the stamping! I think it's more endearing because of the slightly wonky stamping  Smiley I might have to try something similar  Wink

I actually love how the lettering looks. This will make me sound older than I am, but it reminds me of a heavily usaed typewriter, there were always some letter keys that wouldn't stay in line.

Love it!  It is very simple but it definitely works well that way! I also enjoy the wonky lettering: it adds character Wink

I'm glad you all like the wonky lettering! I should have said I did it on purpose Wink.
