Baby's first Christmas keepsake hoops

Hello lovely people,

Happy New Year!
I hope 2017 is full of wonderful things for you all :-)

This will be my last post with Christmas creations but there was no way I could resist sharing this pair of 4" embroidery hoops that I made for two little ones' first Christmas.

They are both for little girls but I didn't want to make both of them pink so one is in pretty aqua instead.

As soon as I got the commission for these I knew I wanted to use James bear images and now he is available in digi format, I could make them just the right size for the hoops.

As usual I have made the sentiments on my computer and then I finished off just with a few snowflakes, in die cut and metal charm form.

I made sure the back of the hoops also looked pretty and added a little tag to so that a message could be added but kept hidden.

I hope you have all had a good bank holiday...I have loved the extra crafting time!

Thanks for visiting and I really appreciate any comments that you leave,
