I and my kids have become obsessed with Wreck it Ralph ever since the Easter Bunny left the DVD in my son's basket.
This is a whopping 12 inch hoop (feels huge for me, I usually stick with the 6-8 inchers) and I used decorator weight fabric for the candy striped background.
Felt was used for the hearts and Sweet Candy-like Buttons for the sprinkles.
The words are done with all 6 strands of DMC white...
and I wanted it to really mimic the Medal Vanellope made for Ralph, so I stitched on a piece of Grosgrain Ribbon and tucked it through the hoop for hanging.
Then I got all crazy with the Ric-Rac and a glue gun to finish off. The fabric was a cool extra from a past swap friend...I thought it fit the Sugar Rush theme well.
The inspiration for this hoop was not only to feed our Vanellope Von Schweetz obsession, but to let my daughter know she's MY hero.
She did SO well getting surgery to remove her Adenoids and get Ear Tubes put in!
She is NO DIAPER BABY!!!!
Thanks for looking!
