Embroidery Hoop {framed fabric}

There are images all over Pinterest of framed fabric, using embroidery hoops as frames.  I picked up a large hoop for less than a dollar a while back at a thrift store.  I decided to frame a piece of fabric from an outfit Kate wore when she was itty bitty.  I just keep adding to this little gallery wall in Kate’s room, and I think adds the perfect punch of color.

This project takes about 30 seconds to put together!  Cut your fabric to size and insert in your hoop.  I was able to insert a little nail right at the top of the hoop in order to hang it.  Kate’s room really doesn’t have a theme, it is just full of color and whimsy and fun.

While living in South Carolina, a friend of mine made little pillow case dresses for Kate (right) and my niece (Mia-left) to wear to a wedding when Kate was about 7 months old (thanks Ash!).  Here they are-I can’t believe Kate was ever that small! 



After Kate grew out of the dress, I threw it in my stash of fabric.  I’m so happy to finally be using it again in a different way!

Here is the breakdown of this little space:

Hot air balloon/elephant art:  thrift store – $3
Framed “K”:  west bottoms – $5
Brass Owl (it’s actually a trivet for the kitchen): thrift store – $2
Tiny ballerina:  gift from great grandma
Mini chalkboard: Pottery Barn Kids Outlet – $10

I know it has been a while since I have posted anything about Kate’s room.  Here are past posts/tutorials from her bedroom (images will be from old house and current house).
