Embroidery Hoop Wall Art

I'm sure many of us have seen these around?
On other friends walls or even possibly, other blogs.
Favourite pieces of material set into embroidery hoops
& displayed on the walls, like a piece of art
(well, really it is, isn't it?)


A favourite summer dress with a hole in a very noticeable place.

I popped an open hoop over it, put it back together
with the material in between, 
tugged at the material all around and then tightened the hoop screw.


I painted 'mod podge' around the rim to hold the material in place
around the hoop.
I didn't get too close to the circle that will show,
just in case the glue might show through.

After weighting down until the glue dried (with a heavy book),
I clipped the material very close around the inside of the hoop.


A favourite old, unrepairable bag.


My beautiful ~ torn ~ repurposed silk sari skirt.
Sigh.


As is often the case, I did no research and just 'gave it a go'.

But I think the result is actually quite effective!
