When I began embroidery, I remember for the first time seeing makers keeping their completed embroidery piece set in the wooden hoops, and I loved it! Once I got the basic embroidery stitches down, next I had to figure out how to finish out the back of the hoop and set the fabric in place for display. I did Google search after endless Google search finding advice and trying out each one.
Over the years I’ve used various different methods for backing my embroidery hoops (at one point I was even stitching felt to the back) and this is my tried and tested method. I am going to share that specific backing process with you on this video tutorial. I hope it helps!
- Embroidery hoop
- Fabric scissors
- Old scissors (that you don’t mind getting sticky)
- Peel and stick fabric adhesive (I use size 5/8″ and you can find this at Michael’s or Joann’s)
- Scrapbook paper
- Compass or extra wooden hoop of the same size for tracing
I hope you found this video tutorial useful in your crafting ventures. Thanks for watching!
