Baby Girl Hoop

I am still crafting {smile}.  I am working on some 'home decor' items for the Mother's Day Craft Fair @ La Cueva High School.  This craft fair focuses on home decor items, and I always craft some special Mother's Day cards.
So, I was looking at some of my left over baby girl scrap papers and embellishments, from Carta Bella.  I just love pink, with other soft colors and a splash of red!  I was looking through some of hoard stash.  And came across a few embroidery hoops.  Interesting, because I don't embroider, cross stitch, or other many needle crafts.  But, I know I wanted I had an idea, just don't too sure today.  So, I used paper in place of the fabric.  And I did add some machine stitching {smile}.

Recipe:  I started with a 5" hoop.  I cut my paper just a bit larger than the hoop.  I used scor tape to adhere the pattern paper to the outside of the inner hoop.  I machine stitched the scrap piece of white cotton trim.  And then I used my hot glue gun to adhere the chipboard pieces.  I added a trio of buttons to the opposite side of the framed girl.  I used one string of cream twine and threaded it through the buttons.  I added cream pom pom trim to the outside of the larger hoop.  I used scor tape to adhere it to the outside of the hoop.  I used tea dyed and pink seam binding to create a 'hanger'.  I tied a multi-loop bow out of the pink seam binding, and then tied it to the tea dyed seam binding.  
This little  treasure was quite fun to create, so I believe that I will make another one later this weekend.  I haven't figured out the theme, but I know it will be sweet {smile}.
