How to make a slogan embroidery hoop step 1

Separate the hoop and place the fabric over the outer hoop, right side up. Insert the inner hoop and tighten the screw, pulling the fabric taut, then trim back any excess fabric to 2.5cm (1″). Place the fabric flat onto the template and trace the design using the marker.

 

Step 2

Thread the needle with all six strands of black embroidery thread and knot the end, then use split stitch to embroider the lettering. We’ve got a handy stitch guide if you need it. Knot and cut the thread after each word, then stitch the dashes around the phrase using straight stitches.

Step 3

Fill the oval shapes using satin stitch – you can refer to the main image as a guide, or choose your own colour combinations. Fill the larger circles with French knots stitched closely together.

Step 4

Step 5

Remove any visible pen marks using a wet cotton bud, then take the fabric out the hoop. Place it back over the hoop, wrong side up, then insert the inner hoop and tighten the screw again, pulling the fabric taut.

Step 6

Thread the needle with sewing thread and double knot it 5cm (2″) from the end. Sew a running stitch through the excess fabric, then pull the thread to gather. Knot to secure, then trim any excess thread or fabric.
