Just over a year ago I attempted to make pendant hoops similar to Dandelyne because I loved them but the postal service was on strike. I also thought I could salvage embroideries and sell them at markets. I wasn't sure how, but I clearly remember saying I want to turn embroidery into a sustainable hobby / job / career. The hoops fell away but I did end up finding my feet with fibre art in a ton of other ways. Testament that sometimes you cant plan these things! I digress.. I made this little snakelet and put it in one of the sample hoops with a gradient of felt circles to create the 3D. Nothing you do goes to waste!
