Embroidered Chandelier - Sublime Stitching

I made this embroidered chandelier piece for my sixteen year old niece. Recently she moved into her own room and I wanted to make her something to show her how mature I think she is. An "adult" type of gift.

I bought the Sublime Stitching Craft Pad two years ago and I  can't believe I am still using it!  I've made so many projects using her lively iron-on embroidery designs.
I ironed on the design on a quilter cotton, gray fabric and placed it in a wooden hoop. Once the project was complete I cut a piece of felt the same size as the hoop and hot glued it to the back. 

I love how simple it is. And it didn't take a lot of time, it would be easy to whip up a few more to have on hand and give as gifts whether it's a birthday or housewarming. Here are a few more examples of embroidered pieces in hoops and simply hung on the wall, I love the way this looks. 

And clearly the Sublime Craft Pad is worth the $15 bucks.
