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'm in love with the mistletoe, it's such a cute idea to have it on a hoop.

Crafting keeps the madness at bay. Or is it the cause?

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!
