shabby chic tattoo hanging hearts

 Some hearts I have made using Urban Threads embroideries on calico.

 roses on the back of the skull heart

 Anchors and ships wheel on the back of the anchor and birds embroidery

in the hoop bunny - Urban Threads Freebie

 I thought I would show you my first in the hoop project.  My hoop is 10cm x 10cm so the finished bunny if quite tiny but cute!
First you put your material in the hoop that you want to be the front (with the face on)
embroider this and when the machine stops you put the 'back' on face down.
The instructions say to spray repositional adhesive but I used a piece of masking tape to hold it down.
 When the outline has been stitched you take it out of the hoop and cut around.
Turn inside out and there you have a flat bunny!! wow! so easy
 Here is the bunny stuffed - isn't she gorgeous.
I sent her off to my niece - I hope she loves her.
I think I could get quite addicted to bunnies now!
