Wedding Wednesday: Bride and Groom Hoops
Just a quick post to update you on the Bride and Groom hoops I shared with you as a free pattern!
I just happened to be working on a veil project (more on that later, I hope) and had some scraps of pretty ivory Chantilly lace and tulle leftover, so I used them to embellish my Bride hoop. I also used ivory bias tape to wrap the hoop (I originally used light gray in my first post).
On to the Groom hoop - I wanted to embellish it, but not too much and not too flowery, so I stitched some very delicate branches on each side in DMC 822 and white sewing thread. I used the original light gray bias tape, and DMC 822 for the lettering.
The difference in color on the bias tape and stitching is very subtle, but I think it works well:
Here are the links to the free Bride and Groom patterns, by the way:
Would you like a pattern version of the very simple branches design I added to the Groom hoop? Leave a comment here, I'll be happy to draw it up later!
