Embroidery Hoop Storage Bag



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!
