{guest post} jenny haas

i'm so happy to have jenny haas of {jenny haas photography} on the blog today.
she created these adorable embroidery hoops that can be used for your bridesmaids to carry down the aisle to add a unique twist to a country wedding.

vintage fabric
embroidery hoop
glue {optional}

{1.} cut your fabric into a square, and make it a little larger than the size of your embroidery hoop. {make sure there are two sides to it, so the back side of the final product looks nice}.
{2.} take the largest outer rim of the quilt hoop and put it on top of the fabric. trace around the edge with a pencil and cut out the circle. 
{3.} once you cut out the circle, flip the fabric so each bad side is back to back {the good side of the fabric should be on the outside}, then put a dab of glue on the inside of the edges {not the middle} to hold the fabric together.
{4.} once the glue has dried, place the fabric into the quilting hoop and secure. {glue is optional}
{5.} the final step includes cutting the string, or ribbon of your choice and tying it to the top of the hoop.

jenny also suggests cutting out letters {with your initials, or "mr. & mrs."} and adding them to create a banner to hang above your cake or gift table.
