Embroidery Hoop Ornament! Ornament Along Week 6

Week 6! We are halfway through this craft along - can you believe it? I can't. Check out this week's Hoop It Up tutorial on Mister Domestic's blog. I had a lot of fun with this one, and I'm almost done with a second version.

I hung some Shimmer On stockings on Manchester Metallic background with care using DMC Precious Metal Effects embroidery floss.

I first painted the outer rings of my embroidery hoops with glitter paint and let them dry. I drew the stockings on the paper side of Pellon webbing so I could cut them out and attach them to the background fabric more easily. It was fun to add some embroidery details from there.

 DMC Precious Metal Effects and Robert Kaufman Manchester Metallics are a perfect pair!
