I should probably preface this post with a cuteness alert!! I’ve been cranking out little Mini Hoop Ornaments, and they are cute overloaded.
And then instead of using them as ornaments, I turned them into the perfect little banner for my kitchen window – –
You know my love for all things easy, and all things “kit” – I am weak for kits! All the supplies are included and you can just jump right in to creating. So when my friend Bev mentioned trying out her new Crafternoon kit from Hazel & Ruby, I was all over it.
Isn’t she awesome?!
I just love that I didn’t have to hunt around for the mini hoops, or the pom pom in perfect colors, or matching thread – or even a needle! It’s all included, along with the instruction sheet to walk you through it.
And it was perfect timing for hand-stitching – because our Royals were winding their way through the playoffs and world series, so there was lots of tv watching going on – which means opportunity for lot of hand crafting while watching! Although as I mentioned on Instagram, it might have been a little funny sewing up snowflakes in October 😉
I loved the practice I got on some skills – like french knots. And I learned the chain stitch, which I’d never done before.
And I even learned to how to make the stitching look like “chalkboard”, so that was awesome as well.
I’m pretty smitten with how everything came out! You can grab a kit for yourself online: Holiday Crafternoon Mini Hoop Kit, or at your local Joann Store.
