The Hoopla Stitching Collection & More

Good morning and welcome to Day 5 of the Papertrey Ink April countdown. It's all about the stitching projects today! This new batch of stitching dies is truly going to knock your socks off! Erin has thought of everything to make stitched home decor a snap. Embroidered hoops are some of my favorite gifts to give, so I know these dies will be in heavy rotation around here. Let's get on to my project!

Isn't this the cutest thing?! I used a 6" hoop and some white linen as the foundation for my design.

Oh Happy Day Hoop

I used the largest of the previously released Stitched Circles as a base and then used the new Hoopla: Stitched Circle Bases to add "grass" to my little scene.

I thought it would be fun to work with the Hoopla: Stitched Banners dies. I used the Tiny Stitched Alphabet to add lettering to the individual pennants. Then I stitched them to the hoop with light gray thread.

I added Pure Poppy scallops to the entire outer edge using the new Hoopla: Stitched Scallop Dies. I added a Pure Poppy Twill bow at the top of the hoop for an extra detail.

I incorporated a bouncing red rubber ball, mostly because it just felt playful, using a Pure Poppy button and some metallic thread. I just free-handed the bounce.

I finished my sentiment with the previously released Sew Stylish Alphabet 1 Die. I love how much versatility is built in to every single stitching die Erin has designed. They all work together so seamlessly (don't mind the pun).

Thank you so much for stopping by today! I'll be back tomorrow with a handful of additional projects featuring this month's releases. See you then!
