I made this Girl on a Swing for the Scrappy Hoop Swap on Flickr. For the first time, I was truly sad to send my swap item to its new home.
I mean really, doesn't she look so cute hanging on my aqua-y gray dining room wall below? I guess I'll just have to make another one.
I really enjoyed making this hoop. I used my friend Aneela's amazing tutorial, which was so fun and easy. I made the entire thing, start to finish, in only one afternoon.
It is a 8" hoop, so it was a little hard to make. The girl's features and details are so tiny! I used linen for the background along with some bits and pieces of my favorite fabrics. The tree is Lush woodgrain from Erin Michael's, and her cute little dress is from Anna Maria Horner's latest line, Innocent Crush. Doesn't the fabric make such a fun dress? I want one in my size. :)
Of course I had to send a couple extra goodies for my partner. Hope she loves hexies and bookmarks!
This little girl has to travel far, and I'm hoping that she arrives safely at her new home.
