Mini Embroidery Hoops

Recently i found these teeny tiny embroidery frames on Etsy. I couldn’t help myself and i had to get some. They’re so cute!! The inner diameter measures roughly 1.69 inches and are perfect for jewellery pendants or keyrings.

This is what i created with the first one. It was so nice to sit down and work on some hand embroidery after not working on any for so long (even though theres a lot of other work i should be doing). I have some other ideas on what i could do with these, maybe paint and glaze the frames with resin.

They’re pretty easy to frame and finish. Just trim the excess, glue down and add a piece of felt or fabric to cover the raw edges. The back of mine looked something like this when finished.

Embroidery Project

I was recently asked by my uni tutor to take part in a research project involving embroidery. The research was looking at people who have taught some kind of lesson, be it a family member, a friend, or a teacher. The idea was to create a portrait of that chosen person out of stitch onto the fabric provided and write a small paragraph about what lesson that person has taught. I chose my mother, since she has taught me far more than any academic teacher ever has.

This was the final outcome of my piece. Unfortunately i will not be able to get this piece back as its going into an archive along with the other participants work. I am looking forward to see what my tutor has planned for these pieces when the time comes to display them as planned.
