How To: Oversized Hoop "Mobile"

We've seen the humble embroidery hoop serve as nursery decor before, but never on such a large scale. Lino's parents, David and Lorena, took the concept even further by silkscreening animals onto small pieces of fabric using glow-in-the-dark white paint. At night, the creatures serve as "friendly ghosts" who watch over Lino while he sleeps. The three creatures -- dubbed Manolo el Mono, Leopoldo el León and Pepe el Pez -- were drawn by David (a designer by trade), who then transferred them to selected pieces of patterned fabric for silkscreening. Other hoops sport fabric, minus the animals. The hoops were suspended from the ceiling at different heights.
