Hey Donna!!
This is already a project I am DIEING to start! Was just waiting for a few supplies from Erin to show up. I found the hoops in my Grandmas house when we were cleaning it out and couldnt throw them out! I think I have all the stuff I need. But got a question; Did you use fabric or paper in the hoop? If you used paper, how did you do it so it wouldn't rip and you got it so straight and smooth?
Thanks so much!

WOW Jessica....so cool you have a hoop that was your Grandma's, I would love to have the same!

I'm sure there are different ways to do this......here's how the posted sample was done.

A piece of fabric was used on the hoop(muslin).....as you would if you were going to embroider. Cut your dsp to the correct size of the hoop you are using.....you can let the wood show, or you could cut the dsp larger, covering the entire hoop(no wood showing. To adhere the dsp to the fabric Mono liquid glue was used to adhere the dsp to the fabric. Apply the glue to the dsp, place it onto the hoop/fabric. Apply pressure(rubbing) over the entire surface from the back(on a flat surface). You don't want to press down on the front, may loosen the fabric in the hoop. Be sure you get the glue close to the edges to prevent lifting.

Hope this all make sense....let me know if you have any questions.
