a little gift idea

sorry for the lack of posts
we've been enjoying our summer
and visiting the beautiful city of columbus, OH
have you ever been there?
it was our first time
and i liked it.

but i did happen to come up with a little gift idea
in the midst of playing outside
my SIL had a birthday last week and i wanted
to give her a little something for her house
something for the summer
and this is what i came up with

if you've seen my etsy shop
you've also noticed that i like fabric hoops
they are so multi-functional, i love it

so i started with some muslin and secured it
inside of the hoop
then i made a little bundle of fabric flowers
out of my fabric stash
two of them are simple gathered flowers
one has a button and the other has a covered button
and the third flower is a yo-yo

once the flowers were made
i took a needle and thread and secured
them to the muslin
then i did a little simple hand-stitch
of the words "bloom"

any words, or flowers would be darling
and who doesn't love a little handmade gift!

have a happy week
