The Hoopla Stitching Collection and more...

Welcome back to another group post for Papertrey Ink! We are previewing a bunch of new stitching dies today that will be available on 4/15 at 10pm EST, and I chose to work with the adorable cupcake! I went to town with a variety of Papertrey Ink FELT colors...

My first thought was to create a patchwork of felt colors on a hoop and add the cupcake over the top, but then I felt like I wanted to put the cupcake on a smaller hoop and just make it a focal point! I thought maybe all of the squares would be too distracting from the cupcake. So the hoop pair was born. I used the larger 6" hoop for the patchwork design and added "Sprinkled" with the older Make It Market Shakers & Sprinkles die. (Kit is still available, it looks like! If you haven't gotten in on these Make It Market kits yet, you really need to!! They are so much fun! **wink**)
To create the squares on the larger hoop, I die cut the squares with Heart Squared and stitched them onto a random piece of fabric I had in my stash. Then to create the smaller 4" cupcake hoop, I used the new Hoopla: Stitched Banners (for the banner) and the Stitched Cupcake dies. 

The Stitched Cupcake dies help you stitch lines down the cupcake liner and the border around the top. I added my own "sprinkles", by just stitching little lines with colored floss - red, hot pink and orange. If you wanted to recreate this for a boy instead, just change out the pink squares and banner shapes for a dark blue. Hope you enjoyed this post! Here is a supply list:

Love your take on the hoop. What's better than one? Two of course! And they look gorgeous together!

Danielle, this looks GREAT! I LOVE the festive feel you've given the little cupcake & the patch work hoop art is also fun & festive! PERFECT! ;)

Wow! Love the two hoops together. While I would never actually make this project, I love the colour combo you used.

Sandy M said...

Glad you decided to make two hoops rather than one. Who would have thought squares would make such a cute piece. And of course the cupcake speaks for itself. Wonderful job.
