Bride of Frankenstein Hoop
This is how I feel right now….AAAAAGGGHHH!!! I realized today the weekend got away from me (I don’t even have a good crafting reason for it!) but when I saw this hoop posted over at Craftster, I knew it was meant to be here.
Roler, of both Washington State and Japan, made this Bride of Frankenstein hoop in the monster swap, because her partner had a great retro comic style picture of Bride of Frankenstein on her pinterest, so Roler decided to try to make a felt version of it.
The stitching around the eyes is double-strand regular sewing thread, rather than embroidery floss. The pink and white of the mouth are tiny pieces of felt, while the lips are also regular sewing thread.
For anyone interested in learning to embroidery similar to this piece, I have to recommend Lime Riot’s blog. She does a lot of felt and wool stitching and it’s good place to click through for ideas and inspiration.
