“Home” Hoop Art from Bev at Flamingo Toes

Recently I got back from the SNAP! conference in Salt Lake City, Utah. As per usual, it was amazing. I took 3 days of classes, 3 whole days of learning and soaking up as much information as I could. I went into it with the mentality that I needed all the learning I could gather so I didn’t plan on taking any of the hands on classes that were awesome, even though they sounded amazing! But, at the last minute I decided to take the Hoop Art Class with Bev from Flamingo Toes and I am so glad I did! Look what I made!

This was such a fun class and I can honestly say, I have never created anything like this before, nor do I think I really would have tried on my own. The way it happened was I was helping Bev set up her class (she is seriously probably the nicest person I know) and I was in love with all her fabric choices right down to the bags that she provided the materials in! That is when I decided I had to try this whole hoop art thing and now I just might be addicted! The class was an hour and a half and much of the first at least half hour or so was practicing the three stitches used. Then we were able to get started and I got about half way through in that time. The first day I got home I finished it up and was thrilled with the way it came out! You can get this FREE pattern on her site too- because she is awesome like that, of course.

I know this is far from perfect but Bev picked a great beginner project and I feel like I did pretty good for my first ever attempt at embroidery. I can’t wait to try more and especially the cute woodland animals she has in her Etsy shop. You may see more of these from me in the future so watch out!

    Your hoop turned out so cute!! I still need to finish mine. Seeing yours all finished and pretty is motivation to get it done. It was nice meeting you at SNAP! That was such a fun class! -Anne
