the fabric you used as the backing is super cute and really adds something to the finished product. thanks for the tute, as i am new to the world of needle-working (but absolutely obsessed with it so far!)...i need all the formal instruction, as i am prone to just winging it. Wink again, GREAT JOB!

To finish a hoop I pull the fabric tight in the hoop and on the back of the frame where the excess it I do a running stitch around the fabric near the hoop base and tighten it up. If the fabric is see thru/light colored I will add a piece of batting in it before I do this. Once that is secure, I cut a piece of felt same size and whip stitch it on the back. I did not do this for the first few I made but I quickly learned after receiving a few that the few extra minutes I take to do this makes a huge difference. Wink
