Monthly craft challenge – embroidery hoop

Welcome to our monthly craft challenge.  Wanda, over at A Wandafulthing, and I started this craft challenge in January as something  fun for the year.  We just threw out ideas of items that were easily accessible. I can’t believe now we are halfway through the year.

Wanda is the craft diva of the two of us so I am always excited to see what she produces.  Drum roll please……this month she used an embroidery hoop as the top of a storage bag.  You can put anything the bag.  The bag can be made from fabric you have on hand or even a pillow case!  Check out all the details over at  A Wandafulthing

My craft is pretty easy.  A few months ago I saw pictures of ways people are using doilies.  My mother was an avid knitter, crocheter and sewer. I have beautiful items in a box. As soon as I saw the different displays I thought of my embroidery hoop craft.

    Love, love, love that variegated pink doily – you are smart to keep treasures from the past and beautiful things that remind you of your mother and be savvy enough to use them in new ways – bravo!

      Thank you. I enjoyed going through the box and pulling things out and remembering. So many pretty things I should put more effort into finding a place to display.
