    Super neat ideas! I just saw a bunch of hoops for sale at the craft store the other day.

    I pick up bundles of hoops second hand all the time….these projects are great inspiration!

  4. Amy Hadley says:

    What a great round up! And embroidery hoops are sooo inexpensive, they're great material.

    I've had #8 bookmarked for a while… so many great fabrics, too few ways to use them. So I love this display!

    Thanks for featuring my mobile. Just make another last week, in fact, for another friend!

    hi! Perfect timing for this post! I’ve been randomly collecting hoops at estate & yard sales. I’m about to make a bed canopy out of one for my daughter’s bed – an idea off of Pinterest (of course!). My next project with them is wall art – I have oodles of vintage fabrics that I would love to frame this way. You’re right, who knew?!

  7. Great Ideas. Love the mobiles.
