Wanted to try my hand at making a mini! Some great ideas out there.
My little mermaid will love this one I thought up.
I sketched a mermaid tail with pencil onto my fabric. Ensuring it would fit inside the 1.5" mini hoop. Then placed drawing in a hoop. I used 3 threads but a combo of colors to get some variety within the mermaid tail.
I found these small hoops at Hobby Lobby. (They do not come with backs)
Easy search online and you can buy them on Etsy from sellers in Australia or U.S.
I bought a small bag of wooden discs from H.L. and hot glued the back onto the back of the mini hoop to hide my stitches and to finish it off more.
Great use of the IKEA Socker Greenhouse. Made into a card holder for the wedding reception.
Used matte white vinyl for the words. Just lift up either greenhouse flap/door and drop in your card. Put rose petals in the bottom for added interest. Would look great with names and date of wedding also. (Which I added after photos)
Would be pretty with a battery pack of fairy lights under the rose petals!
Whipped up two different types of wristlet zippered pouches. I hate when the zippers have that little indent at the corners, so modified and made a grey one that I really like where the zipper placement is. Perfect size for sunglasses, iPhone and some chapstick!
Whipped up some delicate and streamlined morse code bracelets. Made some for co-workers also. I used very fine wire and small silver beads, 2.5mm. They are light as air, which is always a plus for me when something is on my wrist.
