I made this woven and embroidered hoop for the Go Bananas Swap.
I started by weaving the wool yarn base right onto the hoop. Here’s a progress shot:
The hoop was made for me by Mr. Road and was sitting in my stash waiting for the perfect project. Once I completed the woven part, I started embellishing with stitches. I didn’t really have a plan, just wanted to fill it up with texture.
I used some new stitches for this project, including picot, which was super fun!
I did add a loop for hanging after I sent this. It was a fun little experiment!
