I finished my first hoop in a very long time, so I am sharing it with my new Craftster friends.  My first Craftster project.  Smiley

I got the inspiration from Pinterest (thanks Craftster, I am addicted to that too now  Wink http://pinterest.com/jenn90000/completed-projects-and-the-inspiration/)

I started by tracing all of our hands with Crayola washable markers, each in a different colour so I could keep track. 
Then I used a back stitch and followed the tracing.  I added the names and date.  Once finished, I ran it under cold water to get rid of the marker.
To finish the back, I stitched around the fabric to hold it together, padded it with some batting and inserted a cardboard circle.

And a close up...

And the back...

Thanks for checking it out.


Away for a while creating little humans.  Now they are old enough to get crafty again, so I am back.  Smiley

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.
