Embroidered Pumpkins – Part Four


The embroidery is finished, and now it’s time to put it together.

Using a wooden hoop as a frame is a cute and economical option.  I have used a 7-inch wooden hoop.  Before assembling it, trace the inner ring onto a piece of felt.

Cut out the circle, then cut a small wedge out of one side.

Thread a needle with a long piece of double thickness thread and knot it.  Gently but firmly pull the edges in to the middle.

Glue the felt onto the edge.
