DIY Baby Footprints Art

DIY.  PRESERVE MEMORIES.
My mom bought several boxes of sewing items at an auction and let me pick out all kinds of goodies from them.  In one of them was a sewing hoop and I knew right away I wanted to use it for an art piece to hang on the wall.
As I was putting together my white framed wall collage, I thought up this project as a way to preserve how little Emden was when she was born and add to the collection.  Super simple and cute.  You could easily just place a great looking piece of fabric in-between the hoops and hang it up as art.
