I don’t know about you, but I love hoop art. I think its a fun way to show off fabric and decorate a wall.I got to thinking the other day (after I had left over transfer paper from this project) and decided that I wanted to show off some pretty graphic art in a unique way.
I emailed Lindsay about purchasing one of her prints as a digital file, she obliged, and we got to work!
fabric (white//off white//white tone on tone)
tshirt transfer paper
(this part is totally optional, but I had spray paint left over from this project, so I thought… what the heck!)
dis-assemble your hoop and spray paint. Its most important to get the outsides of the hoop because the insides won’t be showing!
While this is drying, head to your computer.
Lindsay from Pen & Paints made THIS free printable for you guys to use (personal use only, of course).
Download this (or the printable of your choice).The screen shots below are the steps I take using my Mac Book… its probably a tad different for a PC.
Open the PDF.
File, Save As & select JPEG
Tools, Flip Horizontal
Make sure the transfer paper is loaded correctly into your printer & click print!
Trim about an inch off the edge of the fabric and begin to glue it down to the inner edge of the embroidery hoop.
I’m planning on hanging this one in my studio as soon as its all set up!Lindsay has offered this needle and thread graphic for a limited time only! Go download it while you can!

Another option is to email a graphic designer who’s work you admire and ask if they would consider selling you a PDF version of their work. Explain to them what you’re doing and promise them you won’t use it for anything else! They’re proud of their work and wouldn’t want you stealing it from them!
