I have a number of those spring tension hoops stored in a tote bag. They are forever getting entangled with each other, so I decided they needed separate pouches. Any old zip lock bag would do, but stitcher-tunity visions started appearing before my eyes. So I sewed this design up into a little sleeve that just fits the 4" hoop with a snap closure to keep it in place.
I thought the hares were supposed to be white, so I had cut a piece of my favorite go-to fabric for white, 36 ct Summer Khaki Edinburgh, before I noticed the hares are supposed to be light brown. I just changed them to DMC 3865 and I was good to go. I added a little extra gold DMC on the kids' clothes as well. Plus I changed the Mom's dress to a darker green for better contrast. Looked a little plain at the end so I added a couple of heart buttons .. after all, yesterday was Valentine's Day. The rest of hoops are jealous now, so I'm sure I will make more of these.

Stay warm everyone... it's wicked cold in these parts!
