Crafty Sheep June Challenge - A Double Hoop Embroidery

I am a few days late, okay, make that 6 days late in completing and posting my Crafty Sheep June Challenge. I found the Stitcher's Revolution packet Sew Crafty at Hobby Lobby a few weeks ago. I am working on a hoop collection for a wall in my sewing room and thought this pattern packet would make some fun additions. I chose to make the embroidery hoop design. To be able to use all the June colors was a challenge. I managed to get a tiny bit of the deep red in the bolt for the hoop fastener. The silvery blue was used in the needle and and the top of the hoop brackets. The deeper gold was stitched for the screw. I love how it turned out. I used the following stitches: Satin stitch for the screw, bolt and hoop. Back stitch around the hoop and the needle. Stem stitch for thread attached to the needle. Running stitch for the embroidery design. Now I am to decide what to make for the Crafty Sheep July Challene. Why don't you join in the fun?

Found this pattern set at my local Hobby Lobby for $ 2.95.


  1. A hoop within a hoop! Love it. It looks like there are a lot of cute patterns in that packet.

  2. I love the style of stitch you used for the hoop. Looking at your stuff I have a lot to learn. I love the crafty Sheep link. Thanks

    1. Thanks Cassi. I saw you like to camp. Embroidery is a perfect take along. :)

  3. This is so pretty. Thanks for linking up at Doodles & Stitches!

  4. Really liking the hoop within the hoop! I'll have to look for that pattern next time at HL, so like your patchwork in side. So glad you shared your creative inspiration over at Sunday's Best. PS - following you on GFC.
