Could anyone please help me out.

I am making my niece a hoop with her initial for her birthday, but I don't know what to do when I am done stitching. How do I put a piece of fabric on the back to hide the stitches? or just how do I hide the messy stitches in the back?

Thank you!

Lately I've been mounting mine on a disk of cardboard with a piece of fleece as padding, and felt on the back covering the stretching stitches.  Makes a nice neat round shape without using a hoop as a frame.  Smiley

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

I've used felt, paper and fabric on the back. There are some great tutorials on Craftster to help you with it.
