Loving this new addition I just finished today! Ended up being 4' x 2'.

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.
I used this video as a guide.
Added a chain and if you to need to, a jump ring.
Wondering what else I can miniaturize!
Great way to also highlight a pretty piece of fabric.
Easily converted in a broach as well.
