Ma­te­ri­als

Small em­broi­dery hoop Plain fab­ric, 1in wider all round than the hoop Small pieces of lace or cro­chet cut from old doilies, hand­ker­chiefs or items of cloth­ing Small beads Pretty but­tons or pieces of bro­ken jewellery

The em­broi­dery hoop fas­ten­ing is un­screwed and the two parts of the hoop sep­a­rated. The fab­ric is stretched over the smaller in­ner hoop and the larger outer hoop placed over the top, trap­ping the fab­ric in be­tween. Keep­ing the fab­ric taut, the screw is tight­ened to close the outer hoop firmly. Dec­o­ra­tive pieces of lace or cro­chet work are stitched to the fab­ric and em­bel­lished with small beads and pretty dec­o­ra­tions saved from pieces of cloth­ing or bro­ken jewellery. Ex­cess fab­ric is trimmed from the back of the hoop for a neat fin­ish.
