Personalized Embroidery Hoop Baby Gift


Ever since I saw this picture, I knew I wanted to make a personalized embroidery hoop baby gift.  My neighbor just so happened to have a new niece born a few weeks ago so I thought I'd try this out for her. 

I've really been trying consciensly to take a concept that I've seen and instead of copying it, changing it to make it my own.  I think I was able to accomplish this today.  Since I am obsessed with birdies as you can see by my entire board on pinterest devoted to them, I thought they would add a nice touch to this little gift.

I used a washable glue stick to attach the birds and then sewed them on with invisible thread.  (It hides the imperfections!)


I added some decorative, um balls?, and some matching ribbon to the outside edge of the hoop that I found in my basement using my favorite super glue, E6000. 


I think I will be making many more of these in the future. 

Hey, I wanted to give you all a heads up.  I am going to be having a Giveaway here on Saturday.  Please stop back by!


I'm linking up over at HouseofHepworths today.  Lots of amazing stuff over there!!!
