Made in the USA DCWV Hoop Art

Hello DCWV friends! It is my day on the DCWV blog! Like many other crafters out there, I have a growing number of 'pins' to try over on my Pinterest page. I have been falling in love with the idea of hoop art and finally decided to give it a try!
DCWV Chick Chat Stack is perfect for the idea I had in mind. It contained burlap and lots of awesome bright colors. 
To start off this project, I found a clip art of the United States and printed it on a variety of patterns from the Chick Chat Stack. Next was the longest part of this project...piecing together all fifty states. In doing so, I tried not to use the same paper next to each other.
Once the states were glued in place, I needed to fill in some of the empty spaces. I started with a title made using die cut letters with the matching papers. To finish, I added matching buttons randomly on the project.
I was super pleased with the outcome of this project. I will definitely being doing more hoop art. Have you tried it? Would love to see your work!
Thank you for stopping! Have a great day!
