Every day this month we’ll share some Handmade Holiday inspiration. It’s going to be fun!

Little Hoop Embroideries by Megan, Lilac Saloon

We don’t have a tutorial to share for these cute, little embroideries, but we love the idea of using 3″ hoops to design some one-of-a-kind ornaments. Megan sells these as custom name embroideries in her Lilac Saloon shop, in addition to some beautiful, larger embroidered pieces. If Megan’s work inspires you to design your own small hoops, you can use our Hand Sewing Month posts as a great stitching resource.
