even though this is soooo 2010… or 2009… maybe even 2008 (who knows) i’m going to share it with you anyway cause i just love how it looks. (i’m getting off to a good start.)
my mom recently claimed one of the bedrooms in my old house as her sewing room. we both loved the look and simplicity of embroidery hoops filled with coordinating fabrics and hung on the wall. so as part of her christmas gift this year. i bought several different sizes of embroidery hoops from here and filled them with some beautiful fabrics from here. and while i was putting together her gift … i also ordered enough supplies and fabric for myself. and this isn’t being selfish. just efficient. or at least i tell myself that.
the ‘artwork’ is in my hall which can been seen from the kitchen, so i tried to match everything up with both my kitchen (which has reds and pinks and grays) and my hall (which will soon have these curtains [and sadly my sewing machine is still in the box … but i’m getting it out this week … i needed thread … and i got some practice fabric. encouragement welcome.])
i really like how it turned out. it’s cozy and warm … modern and fun … a bit vintage, perhaps?
i love the fact that it can be easily changed when i get bored of certain fabrics.
the investment was minimal (even less expensive if you have a bunch of extra fabric laying around). and i used the smallest 3M removable hooks i could find so there are not an excessive amount of holes in the wall.
not to shabby if i do say so myself. what do YOU think!?
