A Spin On The Traditional Embroidery Hoop Design

A Spin On The Traditional Embroidery Hoop Design

We grew up with our grandma cross stitching the classical home and landscape scenery of the time. Recalling the handiwork of crafted sentiments like, "Home Sweet Home" and framed pieces with our family name always makes us smile. And while we enjoy remembering those traditional designs, we love Delilah's contemporary spin...

We love that she keeps the classic feel of embroidery design but uses her hoops in a contemporary way. Accenting a bed frame, the silhouette of a stag makes a vintage design appear chic and cool. Delilah's designs stand out for their simplicity with themes like animals, keys and letters of the alphabet. We also like when she pairs alternative patterned fabrics with her cross stitched handiwork. A gold bumblebee laid out on a toile fabric feels playful and unique. If you're feeling crafty, Delilah sells some of her patterns on her Etsy site--found here.
