I'm no longer doing much T2T as I am downsizing and editing all my 'stuff' but I decided I couldn't *yet* part with these old embroidery hoops. At first I thought I'd use fabrics as I've done before. However I also wanted to do something with some of my old useless patterns so just combined the two. This was a very quick and easy project and may be only temporary but was kinda fun.

Wonder if anyone else has crafts they've done with them?
Yes, I have used them in decoupage, can't find a pic just now. I have also seen lampshades made of them, the paper fluted onto the frame.
I think they would be great as wallpaper in a sewing room.
(we were poor enough as children that we sometimes used them for something else!)
BTW Joy I like your idea and think it is a great use of no longer needed items. I do have a niece though who actually uses these old patterns for clothing! I mean as patterns for such.This message has been edited. Last edited by: lady of shallot,
