Hoop Backing for Kids

This is a simple tutorial for backing an embroidery hoop. I recommend using this method for kids. You can reference the pictures below or visit this video tutorial for help.

  1. Cut the fabric around the hoop into a circle.
  2. Stitch around the edge of the fabric, going over and under the fabric.

3. Once you’ve gone around the entire circle, remove the needle and pull the ends of the thread until the fabric is gathered.

4. Tie the ends of the thread together in a knot. Now you’re finished!

If you want to completely cover the back of your hoop with felt, check out this blog post for help.

Turkey Stitch

The turkey stitch is such a fun looking stitch! It is fluffy and and really pops off your fabric!

Creating this stitch requires, creating loops, tacking them down, and then trimming the loops. You can create long fringe stitches or short, depedning on how much trimming you do.

This stitch is so fun because it feels like you are giving your embroidery art a haircut!

One of my favorite embroidery patterns that uses the Turkey Stitch is my Dahlia ‘Bishop of Auckland” embroidery pattern. The yellow fringe in this flower gives it an extra flair that is beautiful.
