Hoop Finishing an Embroidery Project

© Cheryl C. Fall, Licensed to About.com

Finishing a project in an embroidery hoop is a great way to display a round design. The embroidery hoop frames the piece and stretches the piece, keeping it neat without much effort.

An added benefit is that the material can also be easily removed to clean, or replaced with another embroidery design.

Wood embroidery hoops look the nicest, and can be painted to match the design, but plastic can also be used if the color coordinates with your finished project.

In these directions I have used the Spring Daisy Wreath, a free project available here on the site. It's perfect for this type of framing due to its shape and size.
