The Star of the Show

I love embroidery hoops as an alternative to traditional straight line framing. A round element added to a favorite photo wall is such an unexpected and welcome design feature. Embroidery hoops are fun, but even sometimes a new twist on the trendy craft alternative is a welcome change.

I was so excited when I found these wooden stars... perfect with a little patchwork background, freezer paper applique angel, interfacing, and stapled on the back side with a staple gun (an absolute must in any girl's toolbox!)



Just a simple red version for the smaller star is a great pop of color and perfect for Christmas decorating.
 

Fabrics: Cori Dantini "Merry Stitches", Basic Grey ("Figgy Pudding" and grunge basics), stash fabrics.
Stars: Depot (Germany)
