Valentine's Day Embroidery Hoop
I am always on the lookout for ways to use up the scraps of leather leftover from my leather projects. As a means to reduce waste and create unique decor, this project produces an Embroidery Hoop from a mix of colourful leather hearts.
How this was made
Inspired by recycling leather and eco hand dyeing fabric.
What's included in the price?
~ Different size heart shaped leather discs (various colours) OR pinatex discs (vegan leather made from pineapples - gold) ~ Embroidery Hoop (15cm/6in) x 1 ~ Ribbon ~ A choice of 3 colours: (1) Light pink cotton/linen fabric hand dyed with avocados or (2) Yellow cotton/linen fabric hand dyed with turmeric or (3) Royal/dark blue cotton/linen fabric hand dyed with eco dye. Please let me know which colour fabric you would prefer.
What you will need
~ A glue gun (optional) or strong craft/PVA glue ~ An apron (optional)
I run classes which have been featured in Country Loving and Breath magazines. These take places in my she-shed in Twickenham and range from Christmas wreath making to cyanotype printing – “nature's printing press”. As a result of the pandemic, I’ve also started selling DIY creative kits so that you can try these crafts out in the comfort of your own home. It’s been gratifying to see these becoming so popular – my Christmas bauble kit appeared in the Metro and The Sunday Telegraph.
