Project Day: Fabric Embriodery Hoops as Wall Art

 This weeks project features a beautiful yet simple way to decorate any wall.
What you need:
Stretch your fabric over the inner ring of the hoop then secure it in place with the outer ring. Pull the edges lightly to make sure your fabric is firm.
Once you have it in place tighten the screws, trim the excess fabric and your Hoops are ready to hang on the wall.
Odd numbers always work best when grouping things together, we used three hoops in different sizes however you could add as many as you like.
Have a great Weekend

Project Day; Fabulous Easy Curtains

This week we have created beautiful inexpensive curtains using our Shirting Fabric and Mini Pom Pom Trim.
What you need:

Cut the Shirting to the length of your window allowing an extra 25cm for the hemming. Sew the side seams first then sew the Pom Pom Trim down one seam. Create a rod pocket at the top to allow for your curtain rod. Then hem the bottom. You will need an extra metre of the trim to use as your cord.
You can make these fabulous curtains for under $25 a drop.
Have a great Weekend.
