Tutorial by ANDREA!

Hair Pin Holder

(Isn't this the cutest..I'm off to make one myself now!)

  1. Apply a thin bead of white glue around the circumference of the inner hoop.

Supplies from the August kit:

• fabric

• lace

• flower

• chipboard flower

• brad

• letter stickers

Other Supplies:

• embroidery hoop

• embroidery floss/needle

• white glue

  1. Cut a piece of fabric slightly larger than your hoop. Cut a piece of lace the width of your fabric.
  1. Apply a thin bead of white glue around the circumference of the inner hoop.

  1. Place your cut fabric on top of your inner hoop; fold lace in half horizontally and place where you’d like that to be. Push your outer hoop over the lace and fabric. Gently pull fabric and lace until tight and secure.

  1. Thread a needle with embroidery floss and hand stitch around the fabric. This will keep the extra fabric in the back of the hoop and add a little extra stability. Here is a picture of the back…

And the front…

5. Embellish as you’d like. I poked a brad through the chipboard flower and then through the large green flower and then finally through the fabric on the hoop.

Thanks Andrea for that amazing tutorial, and for your constant inspiration!

This is super duper cute! I just made one using lace and an embroidery hoop to hold my earrings. Just wanted to stop by and thanks for the record cuff video. Someone sent me a link on Facebook. I have made them before, but am totally stealing your rub on idea to embellish my next batch. Did you use a top coat or have any trouble with the grooves in the records and the rub ons?


please respect the hard work that has gone into not only the blog headings/buttons/blinkies etc but also the work done by the design team. nothing should be taken off this blog without permission. thanks so much for your respect and understanding.
