I stitched this hoop for my college roommate and her fiance.  They are getting married at the end of the month.  The hoop is 4" and the design was drawn freehand.

I used their wedding invitation to finish off the back of the hoop.

To all past swap partners....If something I made you fell apart in some way, it would be helpful to me if you PMed me and told me about it.  Sometimes, I try new things, and if they fail, it helps me to know

This is absolutely adorable. Your friends will love and treasure it.

Such a clever idea to use the invite for the backing!! I'm going to stitch up a peacock feather for my friend who's getting married and I'm totally going to back it with their peacock themed wedding invite. Thanks for the inspiration Smiley.

Thank you everyone!  I've gotten in the habit of reusing greeting cards for the backs of my smaller hoops and got a spark of inspiration when I saw their invitation hanging on my fridge.  I can't wait to see what they think of it. Smiley

This is really nice, I love that it looks like their initials were carved into a tree. So pretty.
