Another goodie I sent in the box for my Package Pal was this embroidery hoop storage bag.
I had pinned this image which linked to an article on Always A Project. The author was knocking off a similar project she had seen pinned from Martha Stewart. Isn't the inspiration floating around Pinterest wonderful?
Here's a pic Ellen took after she received her package - everything looks better with yummy yarn in it!
The instructions were very easy to follow and this was a quick project - maybe half an hour? I picked up two of the embroidery hoops (one for Ellen and one for me! I haven't made mine yet - sad.) and they were a slightly different size than the tutorial, but it was easy to adjust. I like the two different doodl-y scroll-y designs - as Genevieve would say, I think they play well together.
I haven't figured out what fabrics to use when I make mine - I don't have enough of either of these left. I think neutral colors like these would be best, so I might just go pick up some more if I can still get it.
Wouldn't a row of these like the image I pinned be wonderful? Maybe a string of mini hoops!
