I love hoop art. As in, I will take any little excuse to create some. There isn’t a room in our house that doesn’t have at least one piece of hoop art hung up. When I joined in for another round of 100 Directions‘ National Craft Month series with the theme of Fabric and Fiber, I knew that I was going to make a piece of hoop art. I’ve been slowly working on transitioning Matilda’s room to a toddler’s room, as opposed to a nursery, but one thing that isn’t going anywhere is her hoop art collection. If anything, I’m just adding to it! This No Sew Butterflies and Bunnies Hoop Art is the latest hoop on her wall.
To make this hoop art, I used:
- an assortment of fabrics
- large hoop
- fluffy yarn
- Sizzix Big Shot
- Bunny and Butterfly die
- Heat’n Bond
I wrapped the hoop in the yarn.
Using my Sizzix is so easy. I just stacked all of my fabric, loaded it into the machine with the die and plates, and pushed it through. I had an instant collection of butterflies and bunnies!
I stretched the piece of fabric I wanted as my base over the hoop and then placed the animals until I got a look I liked.
To make this project no sew, I used Heat’n Bond. I followed the directions to make each of my fabric pieces able to be ironed onto the main piece of fabric. As much as I love my stitching, sometimes I just like the easy way!
It is such a fun piece of hoop art and kind of screams spring, don’t you think?
I hope that Matilda likes her new No Sew Butterflies and Bunnies Hoop Art as much as I do!
