I’m so ready for Spring! It’s been crazy here – one day sunny and 70 and the next day it’s snowy and rainy. I’m done! Now that the calendar says it’s Spring I’m pretty sure that means it has to be nice soon.
This fun hoop set will help you get all ready for Spring! It has bright flowers, simple embroidery and even a cute little rain boot full of flowers!
I think it makes such a fun wall grouping!
Here’s what you’ll need to make the hoop set! (list contains affiliate links)
You’re making three hoops – a 7″, 5″ and 3″. This list includes materials for all 3.
- Background fabric – 1/4 yard light fabric. I used Riley Blake White on White Daisy.
- Fabric for flowers and boot – small amounts of Riley Blake Sweet Prairie fabric
- HeatnBond Soft Stretch Lite Iron-On Fusible Adhesive
- Embroidery Hoops – 7″, 5″, 3″
- DMC Embroidery Floss – white, 725, 3815, 561
- Pom Pom trim
- Hot Glue
- Iron on Transfer pen or disappearing marking pen
- Hello Spring Pattern, Small hoop patterns
Begin by cutting your background fabric about 2″ larger than your hoops. Trace or iron on the pattern for the lettering, stems and leaves for the large flowers and the small flowers in the rain boot.
Cut out scraps of fabric and iron on the HeatnBond to the wrong side of the fabric.
Cut out the flowers and boot from the fabric and iron onto the background fabric using your patterns as a guide for placement. Place the fabric in the hoops to get ready for stitching.
To stitch the designs:
- The stems and leaves of the large flowers are done with three strands of DMC 3815 floss and a stem stitch
- The lettering on the main hoop is done with three strands of DMC 561 floss and two rows of back stitches
- The small stems and leaves of the flowers in the boot are stitched with two strands of DMC 3815 floss using back stitches
- The flowers in the boot are done with 2 strands of DMC 725 floss using lazy daisies
- The fabric flowers and boot are stitched with 2 strands of DMC White floss using a running stitch
Once all your stitch is done, finish the back of the hoops. Pom pom trim is optional but always a good idea.
Are you ready for Spring too?!
I’d love to see any hoops you make with the patterns!
