Good Egg Embroidery Hoop - featuring Elmer's products

In celebration of spring, I created this embroidered Easter egg using a few of the great Elmer's products I received! I used this as a hanging decoration during the holiday.



I started by drawing an egg design onto tracing paper. I pinned that to a piece of scrap felt and then cut the shape out. I used the X-ACTO knife but you could also use scissors.


The Elmer's glue stick works on fabric so I used it to glue the felt egg to a piece of pre-stamped fabric. That helped to hold the felt steady while I stitched. It's strong enough to keep everything in place but light enough that it's easy to stitch through without the needle getting stuck.


Next, I did some simple embroidery stitches over the top of the egg to make it look decorated. For any embroiderers out there, the X-ACTO scissors make great little nippers for floss! I'll be storing mine with my stitching supplies.

Once I finished with the stitching, I decided to give the bamboo hoop an extra splash of spring with Elmer's designer masking tape! There are so many great colors to choose from.


I decided to use the gingham-looking tape. I started at the top then slowly and carefully worked my way all around the bamboo hoop avoiding any wrinkles or bubbles.


I taped right over the bracket all the way up to the end of the hoop. Then I used the X-ACTO knife to cut around the bracket so only the tape on the wood was remaining.  


Happy spring!!

This is too cute!  The tape is totally an updated version of the ribbon that my mom used to put around her embroidery hoops, and that's awesome.

Also, I'm SO glad you posted that the glue stick works on fabric!  That's great information to have!

I'm finishing a lot of hoops with decorative tape now. It's a nice finishing detail.

Bella, the glue stick holds fabric nice and tight!

But why hadn't I thought of it yet?!  sheesh! I will have to give cute little appliques another go.  Pin's always getting in the way, or having the back ground fabric warp,  No more! I'll forever use a glue stick Smiley

I love the whole project. The tape really sets it off. I was so excited to see Elmer's release Washi decorative tape this past CHA. I had a billion ideas for it. Never once did I think of using it for a hoop.

This project is so very LimeRiot!  I love the idea of gluing the felt to the linen before you stitch it.
