Scrappy hoop ready to go :)

I've finally cracked on with the Scrappy hoop that I started a little while ago. I decided to embellish the background with a hat on a stand. I'm rubbish at drawing so I traced a card-topper that I 'borrowed' from Yvonne (you'll have it back soon, I promise!), then machine embroidered round the tracing with a really short stitch length to aid in removal of paper after I'd finished. I'm really pleased with the end result so I just hope my partner likes it now.

I backed the hoop with the paisley Amy Butler fabric and added a hand written label. To finish the hoop I just machined a blanket stitch round the edge. It looks rather rustic but that will add to it's charm....or at least that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it :)
