How to Finish Embroidery Hoop Art
You finished your embroidery! So now what? Time to finish the back of your embroidery hoop art.
Try this method where you stitch felt to the back to cover your stitches.
Start by trimming your fabric to about 1″ from the hoop.
Then with regular sewing thread, sew a basting stitch around the edge of the fabric and pull taut to gather the fabric.
Trace the hoop on a piece of felt. Then cut it out about 1/4″ smaller, so that it will fit inside the back hoop.
Finally, stitch along the edge, catching both the felt and the fabric.
So now your embroidery project has a nice finished back!
