I couldn't help it. I held off as long as I could, but my friend's daughter, Sarah, is 5 years old now and ever since she was born I wanted to make her a little hoop. She was kind of small back then ;-) but 5 years is a long time to wait! And when I ran across some old hooping wire from my hoop, I knew just what I needed to do with it.
So, a few nights ago I embarked on The Tiny Hoop project. It's just in early stages of forming. As you can see it only has one flounce on it so far, and I'm trying to determine whether she needs two or three bones (I think three). My goodness, how adorable will she look!!
Don't laugh at my hat-stand-turned-dress-form. I didn't have anything else to mimic a 21" waist and 42" height. :)
