What's that you say? Obsessed with embroidery hoops? Well . . . yep. Guilty on all counts. I've spent a pretty huge chunk of the last year making and writing about them, so you probably shouldn't expect a slow down in hoop-related posts any time soon. The projects in the book are pretty varied though, so there's that. And there are over 100 of them, which hopefully ups the odds of finding something you really like.
Todays project isn't actually taken from the book - it's from this month's issue of Mollie Makes magazine. It does, however, feature quite a few techniques from the book, including embroidery, applique, decoupage, painting and using washi tape.
You can obviously adapt the idea to make the letters spell out whatever you like, and adjust the sizes, colours and techniques to suit, as well. Or, if you're feeling lazy or lacking the space to display a whole word, pick a single letter and make a monogram instead.
The 'e' is my favourite, partly because I love the way seed stitch looks on felt and also . . . you know, it's a deer. Wearing glasses.
