Creative Uses for Embroidery Hoops

A couple of weeks ago I went to Katie's House (about 150 miles away) to help her with some finishing touches for the Dr. Seuss themed nursery. Among other things we used 7-inch embroidery hoops to add some creative flair!

We printed out Blake's name using a font named Pea Noodle Parlor. We traced the letters onto fusible web...  Then, we started over because I had forgotten that the letters have to be traced backwards onto the fusible web!

We ironed the letters onto fabric, cut out each letter, and then ironed it onto the black and white Dr. Seuss fabric. We then cut the fabric a bit bigger than the 7-inch embroidery hoops. Then you simply stretch the fabric in each embroidery hoop. (You can find more detailed directions here.)

What do you think of it? We may consider making customized embroidery hoop wall art if anyone is interested!
