Crafty Bonanza day 18...hoop it up

I was at the thrift store the other day and found this fantastic giant wooden hoop...for only 1.99 with 30% off....holla!!! That's just how I roll:) I decided I wanted to do another SEW DUTCH sign....more for personal use, but may come in handy when we can't display our big bunting signage.
My new favorite love is fusible web...makes projects so fun! I used an old shirt sleeve from a shirt I had used in a different project and took the green from my stash.

I free-handed the letters and I like how they aren't your standard block letters. I was going for a more bubble letter look. It took me a while because I accidentally cut the letters out backwards...can be tricky when you don't write it out!
For now it will grace the walls of my sewing room, but I think it would be really cute in a nursery or little kids room with a large initial and their birth date...if I find another hoop I may try it!

Happy Sewing!

  1. Fusible web is amazing! I couldn't for the life of me figure out how to applique. Then I finally got the right fusible webbing and the world is right. It even makes sewing optional.
