Week #36 - Hanging Hoopla

Having little catch up sesh here at Lazy Crafternoons and posting the second craft of the week today with these lovely hanging hoop organisers for your craft room or study. (The first craft being these sweet little mini-cushions)

As you may or may not know, I've been quite obsessed with using embroidery hoops as fun displays for photos, fabric and other bits and bobs, having used them before back in Week #18 ... so I've been having a bit of 'a think' and have been coming up with a few ways to put them to use while also making them functional.

I've come up with a few ideas, the first of which I've seen done by a few people here and there (please don't allow me to take credit for the overall idea for this!) and so I wanted to try to make a hanging hoop organiser with my own little spin on it.

Why not brighten up your craft space with one of these?

It looks great up on the wall and helps you keep your essentials within reach and in perfect order!

I put my own little spin on it, by adding some wadding to make it a little more plush and soften the effect of the 'pockets', and stiched the pocket lines from the bottom up, turning around, and then stitching back down, so I didn't have to have any back stitching showing or tie in any loose ends.

This item, will as always, be listed on ebay starting tonight with 100% of the sale going to Macmillan Cancer Support. check out the auction and others here;
