Now that we’ve had a chance to take a peek at what Baby Sister’s nursery looks like, it’s time to dig in to the tutorials so you can re-create all of the cuteness for yourself! I’m kicking things off with probably one of my favorite pieces in the whole room: the I’m So Fancy Hoop Art. Like I said in the room reveal, I was super inspired by Bev of Flamingo Toes and her kitschy hoop art. I knew that I absolutely had to create at least one piece of hoop art of my own for the nursery and since Reagan is currently obsessed with Iggy Azalea’s Fancy song (don’t judge…we censor it), it was a perfect start.
Since I’m all about sharing and making the process of anything easier, I’ve created a pattern for you! This pattern is sized to fit a 9in. embroidery hoop and prints out on a standard 8.5×11 sheet of paper. Click the link below this preview to get yours before we get started!

9in. Embroidery Hoop
Cross Stitch Fabric
I’m So Fancy Embroidery Pattern
DMC embroidery threads in the following colors:
– – 3750: Very Dark Antique Violet
– – 743: Medium Yellow
– – 601: Pink
– – 603: Pink
marking pen or pencil
1. Place the cross stitch fabric inside of the embroidery hoop and secure it.
2.. Trim the pattern around the edges and use the straight pins to pin it into place on the cross stitch fabric.
3. Use the marking pencil to lightly trace the pattern onto the fabric. It’ll take a bit, but its worth it!
4. Begin the process of stitching. Use one color at a time to complete the hoop art. Use the picture below as a guide for what colors to use where.
I used small stitches around the circle edge and for the smaller words. I used longer stitches to cover the word fancy and the diamond.
If you’d like, you can also paint the embroidery hoop to coordinate with your decor or leave it plain; either way looks awesome!
