I did it! I made a felt appliqué hoop art piece using my Wizard of Oz Pattern!
I knew that I wanted to make this the minute I saw the pattern printed in the larger size. I opted for a 7inch hoop to give the design more space, and couldn’t help adding in the magic words “there’s no place like home”.
It’s funny, Im not a massive Oz fan but there are certain things that really resonate with me. One of those things are the Ruby Slippers.
I’ve been on my own quest for those magic red shoes forever! Currently I own 4 pairs, but many more pairs have come and gone because I buy them based on looks and then discover I can’t walk in them/they don’t fit well.
So I guess its no surprise that the glittery red slippers should be meaningful to me. Yes, they appeal to the glamour puss magpie in me. But I wonder if I subconsciously I always wanted magic shoes that could take me home? And being back home, it’s certainly a perk having my boyfriend drive me to the beach to take photos ;-)
