This project by Mamie is AMAZINGLY gorgeous! I totally have the materials for this and can't wait to try it: a container made using hoops. Pop over and see exactly how she did it - you won't believe how simple it is and she has great directions!
When I saw this one I was immediately intrigued - I always am looking for a way to display/hold spools of thread. This idea, from the Yellow Spool.com, fit the bill. A few tiny dowels and I'm all over this one.
While we are talking sewing, I can always use another pin cushion, since the MICE ATE my last one because it was filled with rice! ARGH!! This one is sweet and another one by the Yellow Spool.com.
Let's look at one more sewing-type idea, just because I am into trying to organize. Use an embroidery hoop to hold sewing tools! This was at Sew Daily.com.
Rumspring Forever did one that shows a bit clearer HERE. They used the pattern/plans from the site above.
How about using one to create the handles of a purse or tote? Check this idea out - why didn't I think of this???
Talk about easy, I wish I'd had this when the kids were smaller: an "ever open" laundry bag!
Speaking of the kids, I could still do this one for the lil Whitt's - a perfect nook! A hoop, some fabric, bit of rope and viola! You can get all the details at Small & Friendly.
This really sweet idea can be adapted to almost any decor by using a variety of fabrics. All you need is a hoop, fabric and clock innards. You'll find it at DIY By Design for how-to. I loved the buttons and how she coordinated it all.
This next idea is made to hold Christmas cards, but I can see birthday cards, postcards, you name it! Head on over to According to Kelly to find out how.
This last one I want to share was the first one that caught my eye: using an embroidery hoop to display photographs. Maybe it's the upcoming Mother's Day? I don't know, but I thought this idea from Natalme.com was really cool. I like the 3-D look to it all. Click here to find out how to make it yourself.
I had no idea I'd find so many cool things to do with embroidery hoops. Of course one COULD use them to embroider, but that's for another day. :)
Have a creative day,
