How to Finish and Frame Hoop Art

Embroidery completed.

Trim the fabric leaving about 1 inch around the hoop (just to make it easier to manage).

 Hot glue around the edge of the inside hoop, and ...

 pull fabric tightly and press into glue.  Be careful ... the hot glue can come through the fabric.

 Press around the edges to make sure glue is tight.

 Trim the excess fabric by running the scissors along the edge of the hoop.

 Here's what the back will look like.  It can be hung just like this ... or ...
cut out a felt backing the same size as the hoop.  Add a thread hanger to the felt.

 Hot glue the felt to the hoop frame.  A glue stick makes a nice smoothing tool.

Happy fall!
