Some of you may remember that I am now guest posting over on the Thermoweb blog as a Fabric Project Designer. I really like this as I get to try out lots of the Thermoweb products. Many are things that I use in my everyday sewing but there are some that are new to me and it’s always great to be trying new things and learning all the time.
As their editorial calendar follows the Northern Hemisphere, I found myself designing a project for Autumn when our Spring blooms were just coming into flower. But it was a whole lot of fun to create this hoop art design that uses simple felt leaf shapes appliquéd onto lovely linen.
Introducing the Fall Felt Hoop Art project! To make this wall decor, you’ll need to head over to the blog post for the full instructions and the printable templates. You’ll learn how to cut out the leaf shapes using one of the methods I describe in this tutorial here. Then you’ll appliqué them in place using the principles in this blog post. I also link to a blog that teaches you how to back stitch if you need a quick refresher. Placing the fabric in the hoop and finishing the back of the hoop for hanging is also covered in another tutorial.
I used simple materials for this piece of decor. Just wool felt, linen, an embroidery hoop and some terrific Thermoweb products. And they all make sewing so much easier. It’s wonderful to create projects when you have all the right tools on hand.
Happy stitching, Lauren x
