*snap* embroidery hoop decor

Since my sister and several of my good friends are photographers (or “photog’s”), I’m always on the lookout for camera-themed presents.This “Snap” felt camera hoop art (say that five times fast) fits the bill perfectly.

Do you have any photography lovers on your list? Join me and we’ll make one of these gems together!

To make your own “Snap” felt camera art, you’ll need:
-several colors of wool felt
-background fabric (mine is Joel Dewberry, Lodge Lattice in Azure)
-embroidery hoop
-hot glue
-embroidery thread

First cut out your shapes.
-2″ circle
-3″ circle
-3″x5″ rectangle
-3.5″x5.5″ rectangle
– six small rectangles (for buttons)

Assemble your camera with hot glue.

Add embroidery to a couple of buttons or your ‘lens’ if you please.

Then embroider your background fabric with the word “Snap.” Other fitting phrases? “Cheese,” “Picture This,” or “A Thousand Words,” would all be great.

The hot glue all of your felt pieces to the fabric.

Place a back on your hoop art (trace the inside of your smaller hoop for an accurate measurement).

 
Done! Fabulous, personal home decor for the photographer in your life. What a great (not-so-expensive) present!

ps- I LOVE this camera illustration by grayhood and used it as my inspiration/starting point.
