Framing your cross stitch project in an embroidery hoop is a quick and modern way to frame your cross stitch piece. An it is a very affordable way as well! There are different ways how to frame your embroidery work in an embroidery hoop. We like to do it in such a way that you can also take your work easily out when needed and replace it with a new design. This way you can change your home with the seasons :-).
As we often got asked how we frame our embroidery work in an embroidery hoop, we decided to add a short video on YouTube (see below). It is a quick timelapse of our framing process. We’re no video experts – we prefer cross stitching – so below explanation might be more helpfull.
When we frame our cross stitch project in an embroidery hoop, we always use felt on the backside of the project. As a result you will not see throug the holes of the fabric, and you`ve nicely covered the ugly backside of your project. We don’t use glue as this might leave stains, and makes it very difficult to take your piece out if you like to change it.
