French Knot Letter F


For the Crafty Sheep July Color Challenge I decided to try my hand at lots of french knots. I found a font I thought would be fun and enlarged it to the size that would fit the hoop I chose. My original plan was to do each color around each side and finish with the orange thread. The problem I had was I ran out of room when stitching the inner yellow except for the upper left part of the letter. I then decided the part that was an open area would look great filled in with the orange. I am happy the way it turned out. I dug around in my stash and found this polka dot fabric that has each color in it plus pink. Now, I am not much of a pink or purple girl but I do think the covered hoop and the yo-yo's give the hoop a great finish. 

One more hoop for the wall in my sewing room. I can't wait to have enough to hang them all.
