laundry canvas hoop art... ♥

was just hangin out on pinterest a few weeks ago
just for a minute 
ya know
in doggie years. not the human kind
so i stumbled upon this wonderful blog & shop 
and found this really cute printable that was an instant download
i love it! how whimsical it is ...
i instantly had big plans for this little laundry printable

i went to staples and had the 12x12 size printed onto canvas ... 
it was super cheap! like five bucks i think. i was surprised it was that reasonable...
and i scored a huge box of huge embroidery hoops at a huge estate sale over the summer
so with some gray chev, a huge hoop & a cute printable i set to work.
should i say huge again?

i cut & fit the fabric to size with the hoop
did a quick zig zag stitch around the canvas with my machine, 
then lined that baby up in the hoop and stretched it to fit... done!
i did hot glue all around the edges in the back to keep it nice and tight too
i thought some pom pom yarn back & forth across the front would be fun
used hot glue on the ends for that as well (around the side and then glued to the back)

our laundry area is on the landing at the top of the stairs
and there's no light up there at all, except from what comes in the bedroom windows
so it's a challenge to get good shots up there

i did get some fun pictures though!
i'll be back next week to show you the rest of that space
it's little, but it's fun ... and a lot goes on up there

happy weekend!
