Sweet Hoop Decoration Tutorial

So, I had this idea to make decorations for our up coming wedding, and since I am a Modern Sewist I thought how mach fabric can I use at my own wedding? A lot! There is going to be fabric everywhere since the wedding in in the the woods. I needed something to hang from the trees..... Well, for the first decoration I grabbed an old embroidery hoop and stuck some fabric in it... too boring. I decided to spruce it up and starting sewing pieces of fabric together. This is what I came up with, and here is a quick tutorial on how to do it...

First grab some scraps. For the one above I cut strips from 3" to 1" and sewed them together.
Next I grabbed my embroidery hoop and lined up the bottom hoop with the fabric in the spot I wanted to display.

I then attached the top of the hoop and tightened. Not too much though, you can stretch the fabric or it will pucker.
 Next, flip over and trim off excess...

Voila! Finished product!

Now see what you can do! There are so many cute mini blocks that can be made into decorations or use a little embroidery!
