I made these hoops for some stitchalongs on Flickr for vintage Day of the Week patterns.  These are two related to laundry that now give me a reason to smile while I load the washer.





Stitched the little ironing bird on white cotton and appliqued onto some vintage feedsack fabric that I sewed together into patchwork.





Bonnet and dress were appliqued with fusible web and then embroidered.


C&C welcome. Thanks for looking.

I love these. The pic of the Monday hoop makes it look even better, like there's real depth to the work. Awesome job!

Thank you everyone.  There are so many cute old laundry patterns out there.  My laundry room may just get it's own hoopla wall.  Smiley
