Embroidery hoops are perfect for creating your own speedy eye catching wall art. They’re a great stash busting opportunity to use up a collection of much loved fabrics.
You Will Need
- Old Embroidery hoops
- Fabric scraps for background and with motifs
- Plain fabric for motif
Cut background fabric out with a diameter 4in (10cm) greater than that of the frame.
Draw or trace the motif onto the paper side of the Bondaweb then iron onto the reverse of the chosen motif fabric.
Cut out the motif, then peel off the backing paper. Place the motif on the backing fabric and iron to bond.
Using a contrast colour thread, top stitch round the edge of the motif.
Place decorated fabric over inner hoop, press on outer hoop and tighten screw. Pull fabric through to stretch and cut off excess to neaten.
- Before applying Bondaweb to reverse of the fabric, iron the fabric with a hot iron, this will make the bonding process quicker.
