Beware the Platypirates and their tri-corner hats.

Hi there!
I made this hoop for my partner in a Halloween swap. She likes things with a Wiccan theme, so I decided to mix the tree of life and the triple moon image.



The majority of it is straight-stitched with varying thicknesses of thread. The moons are reverse-appliqued with a piece of lavender fabric that was actually from my prom dress, believe it or not. I used double-sided interfacing to hold it in place, and used running stitch to secure it to the front fabric.

Thanks for looking!

Whatever happened to the ongoing hoopla swaps?

The tree is gorgeous! I particularly like that the fabric has a story behind it, it's nice working with materials that have a history. Your swap partner must have been really excited to get this in the mail  Smiley

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

A beautiful piece. I like that you used the dress fabric for the moon, it makes it even more special.
