New in the Shop: Pink Leaves + Ombre Bunting

I've been working hard to bring new hoops to the shop!
I have two new ones to share with you today.

Lately, I've been ordering wool-blend felt from a fellow Etsy seller, Benzie Bazaar. It's wonderful when I can support other handmade artists. And I do love shopping at Etsy! So it's a win-win situation.

Renae's felts come in a delicious array of colors. I even picked up one of her color charts so I can hand-pick each felt. It's also a fun piece to have in my studio - all those felt circles neatly labeled make me happy.

For these latest addition to my shop, I went small. The faux-bois flex-hoop is a mere 2.5 inches in diameter and the wooden hoop is 3 inches. You can imagine how small those little bunting flags are!

The first hoop reminds me of a pile of leaves or flower petals. I used shades of pinks and mauves in these hand-cut, notched leaf shapes. Then I stitched them on a soft grey felt background with a light mauve-y cotton embroidery floss.

Check out that faux bois texture on the hoop.

Felt Buntings are a favorite motif of mine.
I have single rows of bunting with words like "fete" or "celebrate".
I have ones that are personalized with your name.
I have ones with multiple rows in different shades.

They conjure up festive, happy celebrations. They say "let's have a party!"
And the flags flutter a bit in the breeze. Love that.

My newest bunting hoop only measure 3.5 inches in diameter but it has 3 rows of mini flags, 14 flags in total in three shades of pinks + mauves + deep burgundy.

It's palm-sized!

Let me know what you think! Do love buntings as much as I do?

As always, thanks for stopping by today!

Pin It!
