I’ve shared this fabric hoop tutorial before, but wanted to share it again because we’ll be making these at the DIY craft workshop this Saturday at the Brunswick Goodwill! Space is limited so register today!
1 – Embroidery hoops
2 – Fabric from Goodwill (could be anything… shirt, skirt, bed sheet, etc.)
3 – Scissors
4 – Hot glue
Step 1: Purchase hoops and some fabric from your local Goodwill.
Step 2: Determine the area of fabric you’d like to use in your hoop.
Step 3: Cut out the fabric for the hoop leaving an inch or two extra around the edges.
Step 4: Cut out long strips of a different fabric about 3/4” wide.
Step 5: Separate the inner hoop from the outer hoop. Wrap the strips of fabric around the outer hoop securing with hot glue along the way.
Step 6: Center your piece of fabric on top of the inner hoop.
Step 7: Loosen the screw on the outer hoop.
Step 8: Place the outer hoop on top of the fabric and press down.
Step 9: Tighten screw then trim off the excess fabric.
Hope to see you Saturday at the Thrift Shopping Basics Class and DIY Craft Workshop!
