I’ve been quite taken with all the seasonal embroidery hoop art I’ve been seeing around the Internet.
And now I’m quite smitten with my little pilgrim pair.
Let me show you how easy they were to make.
I started with some muslin yardage, stretched in a wooden embroidery hoop.
No need to iron the fabric, just stretch the wrinkles out, then flip and trim as close to your hoop as possible.
Use a quilting marker to trace your silhouette onto the fabric.
Use fabric paint or multi-purpose craft paint (I used DecoArt MultiSurface Satin in Black Tie) to first outline your silhouette and then fill it in. Be sure to use long, even strokes. Allow to dry and apply a second or third coat, as needed.
Finish by hot gluing a bow and ribbon hanger to the top of the embroidery hoop.
Don’t forget to pin this project.
