Fin­ish­ing Ma­te­ri­als & In­struc­tions

• Black felt • 11" length black pom­pom fringe trim • Polyester fiber­fill • Small piece of light­weight card­board • 4" wooden em­broi­dery hoop • Black acrylic paint • Paint­brush • Hot- glue gun

Sep­a­rate hoop pieces and trace around outer hoop onto card­board; cut out cir­cle. Us­ing card­board cir­cle as a tem­plate, trace cir­cle onto black felt; cut out felt. Set aside.

Paint ex­te­rior of outer hoop pieces black; let dry com­pletely.

Press stitched piece from re­verse side, straight­en­ing as much as pos­si­ble. Cen­ter the stitched de­sign on top of the in­side piece of hoop; then, po­si­tion­ing screw at cen­ter top, care­fully push the outer rim in place. Tighten the screw to secure.

Trim ex­cess fab­ric on the back of the hoop so that it fits nicely tucked into the back of the hoop. Gen­tly hot-glue edges into place on the back of the hoop, tak­ing care not to get glue on the back of the stitched de­sign.

Add a small amount of fiber­fill be­hind the stitched piece to fill the cav­ity of the hoop so that de­sign lies flat.

Hot-glue the card­board cir­cle onto the back of the hoop; hot-glue felt cir­cle onto card­board.

Start­ing at the top of the hoop, hot-glue pom­pom trim around edges of hoop, form­ing a loop at the top for hang­ing. Trim ex­cess trim as needed.
