So I finished my first hooplas but I have no idea how to finish the backs.  How do I tuck the extra fabric in (or do I cut it off)?  I really have no idea what I am doing...

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

There are a few tutorials. I usually cut off the excess and glue felt or material to the back of the hoop. Some people "lace" up the back.

Here's a link for finishing the back.

I like the back of my hoops to be finished/covered. I finish mine the same way as this tutorial shows, except I don't add a layer of batting in the backing circle.

An added bonus of finishing your back this way instead of just trimming the fabric close to the hoop is that if you ever need to wash or restretch your fabric, you can because there is enough fabric left to do so.
