"Size isn’t everything! I’ve had this little embroidery hoop for a while in my collection and this post was a perfect time to alter it. First, I added a piece of paper to it as the base for the composition and then used 3D Gel as my adhesive adding flowers and other embellishments in place. I decided to call the piece “Even roses have thorns” as I included some sewing elements to the composition including needles. " ~ Riikka

Aren't these hoops sweet? I love the mini size of Riikka's crafty hoop, the way Anita showed off a wonderful pet photo on her clean and fresh design, and how much personality Vero added to her sailor girl hoop! Try altering a hoop and sharing it with us!
