Here are a couple of felt embroidered hoops that I made for recent swaps.

The first is an ever-lasting mistletoe! This was inspired by a felt ornament I saw on pinterest. It's in a 4" hoop so it can be used as an ornament or hung above a door for sneaking kisses Kiss!


I found a new use for washi tape! I covered the outside of the bamboo hoop with washi tape that looks like a page from an old book.


This hoop was made for the lovely petskin who comes from Estonian heritage. According to Google, Jould means Christmas in Estonian Smiley.


I used linen fabric, wool felt, embroidery floss, alphabet stamps and permanent ink for both of these.

Thanks for checking them out. Happy holidays!!!

I love the Estonian one - a couple of my best friends are Estonian - the one, the mom actually, would love the second one.  That inspires me on an idea for a present for her next year, thanks!

Oh, you are an awesome craftster! Love what you did with the washi tape. That looks so great!!  Shocked

I have never did any crafting with hoops, but this really appeals to me!


Thanks for sharing, LimeRiot!

When I see this, there's no need to persuade me, hahahaha! I've already been searching for shops (nearby) that sell hooplas... If I make one, I will post it here on Craftster, of course!  Wink

I love the way you covered the outside of the hoop with the tape to give it a new look. These both turned out great!

These are AMAZING! I`ve missed so many great threads here, on Crafster- like this one. I LOVE my Christmas hoop, it was hard to pu in the box, but I`m going to be so happy, when pulling it out next season Smiley - when someone gifts me beautiful things with Estonian words, it`s extra sweet and appreciated. LOVE these hoops! Thank You,. Lime <3

I have to make a mistletoe hoop! May be a Christmas in July project. I just bought a stamp kit and tried it for the first time. I need practice but all your adorable projects inspire me. Smiley
