Altered Embroidery Hoop by CI Shweta Tapsi Khode

Hola people!!

Shweta here today at Prika with a new inspiration project for you all.

The Crafty Superstar fest is on and I'm sure you all must be very excited for it. Do participate in it. To know more about it visit here.

I just love altering old and boring things and giving them a new look. This time I have altered my mother-in-law's embroidery hoop and created a beautiful piece of art.

The best part of this fest is the creative freedom you get with 'Anything Goes' theme and so many sponsors for this event, you are free to put to use any materials from your craft stash. And that's what I did.

List of supplies used:

➤ Background, flourish, leaf chippies- Papericious

➤ Leafy flourish chippies- Mudra

➤ Leaf die cuts- DMC dies

➤ Stencil, fuschia pink sprinkle mist,jingle shells metallic  paint,deco stones- Expressions Craft 

➤ Silicon glue, heavy acrylic gel,soft gel- Little Birdie Craft

➤ Pattern paper from my stash

➤ Cement texture paste- CrafTangles

Steps of Making:

To start with, I applied the cement texture paste all over on the hoop and let it dry. I then sprayed the pink sprinkle mist on it the textured hoop randomly and washed it down with a lot of water for a subtle colour.

Then I cut the pattern paper in a circle with the diameter equal to the outer circle of the hoop. Applied the same texture paste using a stencil on the paper. Glued the paper to the bottom of the hoop using heavy gel.

Then glued the background chippie on the paper such that it is slightly raised to give a dimension.

Then used various leaf and flourish chippies. die cuts, fussy cut flowers, clay embellishments coloured with metallic paint and my handmade flowers and assembled them to my liking.

Applied some deco stones here and there with some soft gel. Lastly added a sentiment and tied some laces at the top to finish it off!

I hope my creation inspires you.

  1. Wow! This is gorgeous!! I love the beautiful flowers, chippies, diecuts and all the details! :)

  2. By and large, there are two sorts of weaving machines. The first is a machine that just does weaving. The second is one that offers both the advantages of a sewing machine and weaving also.
