What You’ll Need

8-in. em­broi­dery hoop String Chunky yarn Felt Fab­ric glue Parch­ment pa­per Leather trim

1. Sep­a­rate the two halves of the em­broi­dery hoop. Tie 8 pieces of string onto the in­ner hoop so they cross and make a star­burst. Place the outer hoop back over the in­ner and tighten.

2. Us­ing the yarn, and start­ing in the cen­ter, bring yarn over the first string and un­der the next. Con­tinue weav­ing in the round, chang­ing col­ors ev­ery few rows. When you change col­ors, leave a 1-in. tail in the back. Con­tinue weav­ing, push­ing yarn to­ward the cen­ter to avoid gaps, un­til you reach the edge of the hoop.

3. Place the fin­ished hoop on a piece of felt. Trace and cut out.

4. Use fab­ric glue to se­cure the felt to the back of the weav­ing, tuck­ing in loose ends. Place a piece of parch­ment pa­per and a heavy book on top so that the felt ad­heres evenly. Let dry.

5. Re­move the outer hoop. Cut the weav­ing off the in­ner hoop; trim ex­cess string and felt. Fin­ish by glu­ing on a loop of leather trim.
