As I have freshly moved into a new place I'm getting to the point where my boxes are pretty much unpacked (finally - hooray!) and I am attempting to get settled. I figure the final step to make this rental a home is to get decorating! Nothing says home like some art on the walls! I have been drooling over quite a few etsy prints lately but purl bee's image really got me thinking - how about some embroidery hoops filled with fabric swatches?
Purl bee even has a tutorial on how to make these and I am ever so tempted! It is such a marvelous way to get a crafty looking art element to any space with wonderful clusters or pattern and colour all with a thrifty price tag! What else could you ask for? Seriously!
I think it might also be a good use for some of those pricey quilting fabrics I've stocked up on and are afraid to cut. Hey - then I could enjoy their fabric goodness all year long! And I'm not the only one stoked on the idea Rachococoa made a saturday of it! What fun! Now all I need to do is find a plethora of cheap embroidery hoops - any suggestions?
