Hoop art is extremely popular, and I have been oogling people’s projects on Pinterest and Instagram for a while now. My first crafting skill was counted cross stitch– I learned when I was about seven, much younger than the Big One is now. I loved sewing, and the peace and relaxation that it brings me, but I haven’t done it in years. However, with the dozens of gorgeous hoop art embroidery projects that I’ve seen on the web recently, I’ve been itching to get stitching again! Several weeks ago, we were at an event where the children were given coloring pages from The Very Hungry Caterpillar. I thought the pictures would be perfect for some hoop art for the Little Monkey. Using the coloring page, I made a template for my Very Hungry Caterpillar Hoop Art.
