So after lurking for some time I have decided to share my hoops with you.

This is my first one from last year. The pattern I draw myself I had no idea how to transfer images so I drew it on with pencil. I didn't really know any stitches so you can see I was experimenting ALOT.



Next was a prezzie for my best mate. We have a lot of in jokes about rabbits. She had drew a picture of this rabbit and I found some felt so decided to stitch it up!



This one is an xmas prezzie for my sister. I think that the fabric may be a bit thin but I liked how this turned out. I got the pattern online and used my new image transfer techniques!



This one is for my other sister. Again it was an image I got online. I think the outline coulda been thinner but apart from that I really like it.



Any criticisms welcomed Smiley

The goat one is hilarious!  I also like the rabbit one a lot.  Smiley

My only criticism is for the two lower ones, to consider lining light-colored or see-through fabrics with another layer of white fabric or felt to keep the extra fabric from showing through.  Here's a tutorial about finishing hoops you might find helpful:  http://www.cutoutandkeep.net/projects/how-to-frame-your-embroidery-in-a-hoop

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

Who would criticize good art? They look lovely. Us craftsters are always way too critical of ourselves.  Grin
If you don't point out the things that you think were boo boo's. No one else will know! I think you did wonderful, and fun to know that you are experimenting with the different stitches, and learning which fabrics seem to work best. Great Job!
