Hi DTLB readers! My name is Angela, and I blog about decor, DIY, crafts and organization at Blue i Style–; and, like Tasha, I am a lawyer who isclearly also trapped in a designer's body.

I love modern design and lots of color, so it's appropriate that my first contributor post to DTLB is a very colorful addition to our modern kitchen.Here's a quick look at our kitchen before this new addition. (If you are interested, youcan also take a full tour of our kitchen.)

Teal and gray are two of my favorite colorsburlap throw pillow covers, and they make a great backdrop for our seasonal decor. I add orange accents in the fall, and red atChristmas. With spring finally here, I was feeling like the kitchen really neededsome pops of bright colors to welcome the new season and to carry us through the summer!

While out for a walk in our neighborhood a few weeks ago, I saw a gorgeous display in the front window of a consignment clothing store. I snapped a quick picture to share on Instagram, and then as I walked home I realized that a similar window display would be a fun and inexpensive way to add some color to our kitchen. Let me show you how easy it is! This post contains some affiliate links. Click here to read my full disclosure policy.

There are a couple offactors you need to consider when purchasing your fabric. Most cotton fabric has a “;right”; side and a “;wrong”; side. If the fabric you choose is printed thisway, then you will want to put two pieces of the fabric back to back inside the embroidery hoop so that when the hoop hangs in the window you will see the right side of the fabricfrom inside the roomand from outside.

Additionally, if your fabric is light in color, when you place two pieces back to back and hold it in front of a window, you will see the pattern of one piece showing through the other.

To prevent this, I added a layer of batting between my layers of fabric(a layer of muslin between the fabric would also work). Hold your fabric up to a window to determine if you need a layer or batting or muslin.

STEP 1: Loosen the screw at the top of the embroidery hoop toseparate the inner and outer rings.Lay the inner and outer rings on top of your fabric. Use the hoops as a guide for cutting two squares offabric, each at least one inch bigger thanthe hoops

STEP 2: Cut a square of cotton batting or muslin approximately the same size as your fabric. Place your two fabric squares back to back, with the layer or batting or muslin in between.

STEP 3:Place the inner ring of the embroidery hoop underneath the fabric, and place the outer ring on top. Press the outer ring downuntil the inner ring issnug inside the outerring.

STEP 4:Turn the hoop over, and you will most likely find that the fabric on the back side is a bit buckled.

Press down on the inner ring, then tug at the corners to pull the fabric taunt. If your fabric has stripes or lines, be sure to pull evenly on all four corners to prevent the lines from being stretched too far in any one direction (which would make the lines look wavy).

STEP 5:Tighten the screw at the top of the hoop to hold the fabric securely in place.

Repeat these steps until all your embroidery hoops are filled with fabric.

STEP 6:Now it's time to trim off all of the excess fabric using a sharp pair of scissors (using dull scissors will make this much more difficult, and will chew up the edges of your fabric). Cut the fabric off as close to the hoop as possible. I found it easiest to use a small, fine point pair of scissors. My favorites are the Cutter Bee Precision-Cut Scissors–; they are inexpensive and I use them for everything.

Here are all of my fabric filled embroidery hoops after trimming off the excess fabric…;

All of that color and all of that pattern! It makes me smile just looking at it!

STEP 7:The final step is to hang the embroidery hoops in your window using clear 3M Command decorating clips. These clear, mini hooks are my favorite because they arebarely visible and they remove cleanly and damage-free. I spaced twelve of them evenly across the top edge of my long, thin kitchen window.

I then used some cute, pink and white baker's twine to hang the embroidery hoops from the Command hooks.

I hung the hoops at varying heights, alternating the 8″; hoops with the smaller 5″; and 6″; hoops.

The final product is a bright and modernwindow display that addsvibrantpops of cheerful spring colors to our kitchen!

The simple addition of these embroidery hoop framed fabrics has added so much color and life to our kitchen, bringing the warm feeling of spring in from the outdoors.

Because our home is south facing, the fabric in these hoops will get a lot of direct sunlight throughout the day.As a result, I know that the fabric will fade over time and will need to be replaced.

I like to display different things in this kitchen window for each season, so I plan to take these hoops down when fall rolls around. Because thisproject was very quick and inexpensive, I don't mind if I have to replace the fabric nextspring. By purchasing a quarter yard of each of thefabrics, I have enough left over to re-hoop the same fabrics next year,but I also like the idea of being able to easily update this display year after year by choosing fun new fabrics that represent the latest decor trends.

Thanks so much for making me feel so welcome over here at DTLB today! I'll be back in a few months to share another stylish project with you. In the meantime, feel free to connect with me over on my blog oron social media:


First of all, let’s clear up the term ‘vegan.’ A lot of people think it’s just a short form of ‘vegetarian’ – someone whose diet consists primarily of plant-derived foods, although some also eat eggs and milk products (lacto-ovo vegetarians), but no actual animal flesh.

You’re going to love this tutorial! I’m going to show you how to paint on fabric with regular acrylic paint! I have been wanting to try painting on simple cotton flour sack kitchen towels for a while and I didn’t realize that I could use regular acrylic paint on fabric. I was also eager to use a mixture of blue paints for a classic look.?I was thrilled to find out I could! I made the cutest farm style kitchen flour sack towels that will also make the best gifts!?? These were very very simple after a trial and error.
