Monogram Embroidery Hoop

I’ve got a great way to make a personalized gift today! Here it is:

First you’ll need to gather your supplies: A hoop in the desired size, cute fabric, adhesive, ribbon, and a letter.

I cut a letter with my Cricut on copy paper & traced it onto muslin that I’d backed with iron-on-fusing.

I cut the letter out & set it aside.

Next I put the cute fabric in the hoop.

I cut the excess at approximately 1” intervals so that I could fold it in without creating bulk. I used ribbon adhesive on the inside of the frame.

I added the pretty sheer box pleat to the outside of the hoop with fabri-tac.

Hoop complete!

I hand-stitched the monogram in place & added a Baker’s Twine bow!

(Here’s a tip- I’ve made another one since, and machine stitched the monogram before I attached it to the hoop & that worked great!)

Now you’re ready to hang your hoop or package up for a gift! I think this will be my baby go-to gift! 🙂 I also made one for my cousin’s wedding!

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you’ve been inspired!
