People have been using fabric in embroidery hoops as wall art for awhile now and I always think it’s really cute and fun, but it’s usually super girly. I decided to try and “boy it up” a little bit and I love the results.
Totally not girly at all! You can see we still have tape measures and tools laying around in here, but it’s getting there!
I wanted some simple baseball silhouettes so I just did a search for “free baseball silhouettes” or something like that. Then I used my favorite wax paper method for transferring a printed image onto fabric.
Transferring onto burlap rather than the thin white cotton that I used before was a bit more challenging, so I basically had to scratch the image on with my fingernail to get the ink dark enough. It worked though! Then I darkened it up a bit more with a Sharpie.
Then I just placed the fabric in the hoops and trimmed the excess!
The total cost for these two pieces was about $5 for the two hoops. Everything else was stuff that I had on hand!
This project also only took maybe 20 minutes from start to finish. That makes it a winner in my books!
