Months and months ago I bought this tiny embroidery hoop from Dandelyne on Etsy.
I was really excited but like so many other times I buy cool things, I get nervous to use them. I feel like I’m not going to come up with a good enough project to do them justice. I finally decided I just needed to stitch something up for this hoop so I can make it into a necklace.
I stitched up a couple possible designs and I can’t decide. I’ve ruled out the spider, (though Evie requested I make it into a necklace for her) so it’s between the bird and the flower. I’m leaning towards the flower, but I’m not 100% sold on it.
I love all three of them! The bird, though, I think would look cutest as a necklace. 🙂
Definitely the bird! Love it!

all three are cute…but i think i would go with the flower. 🙂
I love the spider!
I prefer the bird between the two of them as a necklace, but the flower might go with more outfits?
That was my ultimate deciding factor. The flower seemed more appropriate for more occasions!
All cute but I’m lovin’ the flower!

I think the bird but that is a good point about the flower going with more.
The bird is the cutest!

I’d go with the bird! But I’ll be the first to admit I’m on a bit of a bird kick. . . 🙂
I do love birds but I went with the flower. I’m going to make a button with the bird though and keep it on my bag!

The flower seems a bit more classic, and I wear tons of black, so I am biased. Will love to see either when it’s done, though! I have some of those too and a similar problem with committing. How are you planning on finishing the back?
The hoop is designed really well so the back is covered. I wear a lot of black too and I like the pop of color the flower gives.
I adore those tiny hoops, and the only reason I haven’t ordered any yet is the very same you mention–worry about how to do it justice! LOL. Completely identify with that. If I HAD to choose just one, I’d go flower, but they really all three are lovely and would make great necklaces. 🙂
I am glad I went with the flower for the necklace, I think I’ll wear it most. The other two will be pins I think. I posted about how to finish the back of them today!
Oh, and I second the question–How will you finish the back? Very curious.

I would choose the bird 🙂
