So I know putting fabric in embroidery hoops and hanging them on the wall has been done to death in the crafting world, but I still love it. So there.
We have a large wall in our dining room that had been blank for just way too long, so I finally decided to do something about it.
First I pulled a myriad of scraps and prints from my collection. There was really no rhyme or reason to why I chose what I chose - I just wanted it to be colorful while still meshing well together.
Then I took all of my embroidery hoops and raided the ones from Phoebe's nursery as well and laid them out in a pleasing pattern on the floor. Then I basically put the fabric in the hoops based on what scraps would fit into what hoops.
Then I completely disregarded my initial diagram and started randomly nailing them to the wall.
Until it looked like this! I can still see a couple of holes where I'd like a few extra, but it will have to wait until I replenish my stash of wooden embroidery hoops. Also, please disregard the terrible lighting fixture - that hasn't been replaced yet.
On another note - I hit up an amazing estate sale this weekend. So the spot in front of this wall isn't empty any longer. I'll be back with a post about that later this week.
