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!
