Embroidery-faced Plugs - FCQ12020 Challenge Entry

Spring is the time for brighter colors and more in-your-face jewelry. I have been wanting to try my hand at embroidered earrings for a while now, having seen some really cute and simple inspiration pieces. When I saw this challenge, I knew I had to give it a try!

I started with some muslin and these wooden disc beads I had in my stash. I used the beads to trace circles and started stitching…

Once they were stitched, I cut them out leaving a bit of fabric for finishing:

Each design was sewn around the original wooden disc bead for stability:

And then I glued (using hot glue) to a pair of metal tunnels I had lying around:

Voila! Check out my awesome new Spring Bling!

What a neat idea! Beautiful design too.

I’m looking at that last photo thinking “Hmm, what is that perfect circle on Abbee’s ear, is it another earring of some sort?”

No. That would be your hair. Your curly, curly, perfectly curly 'fro! :smile:
