Dick's Drive-In Hoop

Saturday, March 17, 2012

If you live in Seattle or have visited our fine city, you've probably heard of Dick's Drive-In and maybe even enjoyed a cheap burger and some of their famous greasy fries. There are a number of locations throughout the city and I'd consider all of them important landmarks!

I made this for a swap partner that was a former Seattleite. I know if I ever moved away, Dick's 2AM cheeseburgers and vanilla shakes would be something I'd greatly miss. Hopefully this gave her a nice reminder of her former home.















I made this with a combination of freezer paper stenciling and embroidery stitching. I used acrylic paints in layers and once everything was dry, I stitched over the top of it and around the outlines. I liked the bright colors it resulted in. Better yet, it's another way to avoid learning satin stitch!!
















Thanks for stopping by! Don't forget, you still have another day to enter my Favorite Things Giveaway! I'll be picking a winner tomorrow.

Love it! I also look for ways to avoid large amounts of satin stitch - so scary! =) It's hanging on my wall with pride right now.

I love this! You are so creative. I used your elephant felt and embroidery info for inspiration for my first project. I would love for you to check it out. :)

Go and check out Kootoyoo's version of satin stitch and I promise you won't look back. Although I reckon you have a real "If It Ain't Broke Don't Fix It" case. (I love it!)

Hey Mickey said...

Have just discovered your blog and love, love, love your hoops. Your felt embroidery tutorial inspired me to give it a go and I am pretty happy with the outcome (on blog if you want to check out). Thanks so much for the inspiration!

I've been browsing online more than three hours these days, but I by no means discovered any interesting article like yours. It's pretty worth enough for me.
In my view, if all web owners and bloggers made just right content as you probably did, the
net will probably be a lot more useful than
ever before.
