While looking for inspirations in the world wide blog world, I cam across this gem. I loved Tammy and Annie's take, and it looked easy enough, so I decided to give it my own Valentine theme spin. Check it out!
|My finished product, little bit of Valentine's love!|
|All the necessary materials|
|The top of the flower pot was the perfect size for my circle, so I used it as reference|
|Traced around the pot|
|Circle ready to be cut out|
|Sew a quarter inch hem|
|Pull on the end of the thread, the edges will begin to bunch|
|Edges all bunch to the middle|
|Tie off and cut the thread|
|Sew on a button of your choice|
I then took my large piece of fabric (I actually used felt) and put it inside of the embroidery hoop. I trimmed off the biggest amount of excess felt, but left a good edge around the sides.
|Put fabric inside of your hoop|
|Decide on placement of flowers|
|Pin down flowers so that they stay in place|
|What the back of the hoop looks like|
|Front of the hoop with the flowers sewn on|
|Use a pencil to write out your letters for reference|
|Simple cross stick over the letters|
|Trim the edges and hang it on the wall!|
All in all this project was pretty simple and I didn't spend a dime. I had all of the materials already at my house, score!
