“Brave” Altered Embroidery Hoop by Keri Sallee

Good morning, everyone!  I have another project completed by design team member Keri Sallee to share with you today 🙂  Keri created this beautiful altered embroidery hoop to show off some of the goodies in the ButterBeeScraps shop.  You know, I’ve always thought it would be cool to work with some of these hoops, but I was completely stumped as to what to do with them.  Keri has solved my problem…what a simple and great way to create a round canvas.  (I do sometimes tend to over-think things and make them more difficult than they need to be.)

Here’s a good look at Keri’s completed hoop:

Keri first spray painted the embroidery hoop and deer die cut.  Once the paint had dried, she added some broadcloth to the hoop to create her working surface.  Now the fun part…Keri started adding layers of glittered feathers, ButterBeeScraps doilies, her painted deer die cut, letter thickers from her stash and SS16 Light Colorado Topaz Flat Back Glass Rhinestones.

Keri created this hoop while focusing on the word “brave”…what a great word!  Even better yet, Keri has added an inspirational photo and fantastic advice on being brave in her blog post of this project.  On her blog, you will also find a complete step-by-step tutorial (including lots of photos) of how she created this meaningful piece.

As always, I thank you for popping by today.  I hope you all have an enjoyable week, and I will see you on Thursday for another tutorial 😀  Cheers!
