These little Monster hoops would be the perfect addition to a child’s bedroom.  Let me show you how fun and easy they are to create!  You will need: 
an embroidery hoop
cotton material 
scraps of felt material
hot glue gun

Begin by cutting out a monster shape from felt.  Add fun features like spikes, antennas or limbs.  Sew a zig zag stitch around the shape to add interest and attach features to the monster.

Use a hot glue gun to glue facial features to the monster.

Now that you have a cute little monster face lets make an embroidery hoop mat to place it on.

Do you have a large pile of scrap fabric?  Framing those scraps with an embroidery hoop is a great way use them up!  I found these 4″ hoops at Michaels but have also spotted them at the dollar store and scored a few vintage hoops at the thrift store.

Cut a piece of fabric at least one inch larger than the embroidery hoop.

Fasten the fabric into the hoop and trim off excess material.  I like to tighten the hoop and glue excess fabric to the back.  Finally glue the monster to the front of the hoop.
