camera photo gift
This embroidery hoop art is perfect for the photographer on your list.   What a great sentimental piece of art that has meaning for a photog.  And you can expand this idea and add anything you want into an embroidery hoop for instant, personalized art.  Please welcome Kirstin from Kojo Designs with her Snap Hoop Art.


Hello Infarrantly Creative friends! I’m Kirstin, half of the sister team that blogs at kojodesigns, and I’m so excited to be a part of the Pennywise Presents series. We love Beckie, love her blog(s), and are thrilled to be here today!



Since my sister and several of my good friends are photographers (or “photog’s”), I’m always on the lookout for camera-themed presents.This “Snap” felt camera hoop art (say that five times fast) fits the bill perfectly.



Do you have any photography lovers on your list? Join me and we’ll make one of these gems together!


several colors of wool felt

background fabric (mine is Joel Dewberry, Lodge Lattice in Azure)

embroidery hoop

hot glue

embroidery thread





First cut out your shapes. -2″ circle -3″ circle -3″x5″ rectangle -3.5″x5.5″ rectangle – six small rectangles (for buttons).



Assemble your camera with hot glue.



Add embroidery to a couple of buttons or your ‘lens’ if you please.



Then embroider your background fabric with the word “Snap.” Other fitting phrases? “Cheese,” “Picture This,” or “A Thousand Words,” would all be great.



The hot glue all of your felt pieces to the fabric.


Place a back on your hoop art (trace the inside of your smaller hoop for an accurate measurement).


Done! Fabulous, personal home decor for the photographer in your life. What a great (not-so-expensive) present!

ps- I LOVE this camera illustration by grayhood and used it as my inspiration/starting point.

Thanks again for having us, Beckie! Happy Pennywise Present making friends! And we’d love to have you stop by kojodesigns anytime.
