Hi everyone, Kim Dellow here today sharing how I made this mixed media embroidery hoop project. I am a bit of a button hoarder and am always looking for ways to use them up, so that I can buy new ones of course!. I also love embroidery hoop art so what better excuse to put the two together! I have put together a video to show all the steps of the project but feel free to ask me any questions in the comments below. You can make this project completely your own by changing up the pattern of the buttons or using different colours, or how about adding a more visible sentiment! There are lots of possibilities and I also show you how to make your own circle canvas too.

Embroidery Hoop 8 inch

Muslin (AKA as Calico)
