I don’t share recipes on my site so I had to join in with a crafty project – and for me that usually means Embroidery hoop art! I had a blast stitching up this cute summer s’mores hoop!
So fun right? It’s the perfect hoop for showing off your favorite summer treat – and it would make a great gift for friends too!
It even has some little “toasted” pom poms around the edge!
So let’s get started – here’s what you’ll need:
- 8″ embroidery hoop
- 10″ square of background fabric
- Felt pieces – white, light tan, medium tan, brown, dark brown
- Coordinating DMC embroidery floss – I used 3866,310, 3862, 435, 738
- Heat-n-Bond Fusible webbing
- Pom Pom trim – 1 yard
- Marking Pen
- Hot glue
- S’mores hoop pattern
Transfer the pattern to the fabric for the lettering and the hands and feet. Stitch everything with a back stitch.
Cut pieces of fusible webbing slightly larger than the s’mores pieces and iron them to the felt pieces. Cut out the pattern shapes for the chocolate, marshmallow and graham cracker. I added a bit of light tan felt to the top of my marshmallow for a toasted look.
Remove the paper backing and place the felt pieces in place according to the pattern.
Stitch around all the shapes with a small running stitch. Stitch across the center of the graham cracker to make the little perforated break line. Add the chocolate bar pieces to the background of the chocolate and stitch in place. Stitch the faces with little French knots for the eyes and back stitches for the mouths.
To create the “toasted” pom pom trim, brush a bit of tan paint on the top of the pom poms. I used my finger, it was easiest to get a toasted look that way. Top them off with a little rust craft paint to add some darker color.
Finish the back of your embroidery hoop and glue on the pom pom trim. Now you can show off your cute S’mores hoop!
Thanks so much for including me in the series Sarah!
