Love: bear hoop inspiration

Hoop Up! swap inspiration piece for round 3 - close-up
stitched by bearpawandbearpaw

Oh my goodness I love this so much! This adorable piece was inspired by the illustrations of Aya Kakeda and was artfully stitched by bearpaw for the Hoop Up! Stitch and Send Swap.

Apparently, bearpaw is relatively new to embroidery? Well she hasn't wasted any time and is already creating amazing things. Read more about her creative process on her blog post. Beautiful work, bearpaw!

  5. Thank you SO much for featuring my little embroidery! And thanks for the lovely comments too. I am totally in love with my little bear pal and it is lovely that you all feel the same way too! I was thinking of doing a series of these and producing patterns, your lovely reactions have given me a bit more confidence to get on with it!

  6. Wow she is great and this is fantastic.....
