I have so many beads, baubles, and trinkets. I made this embroidery hoop to use up a few of them and plan to give it to my mom, along with some other things, for Mother's Day (so ahead of the game this year!).



This is the first hoop that I've tried to finish the back on. It's a bit sloppy (as are all the backs of my embroidery projects   Roll Eyes) but mom will still like it, I think!

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

It's very sweet, lots of detail to look at again and again.
I too am curious about the size.
I'm sure it doesn't matter if the back is not tidy since it's going to be hanging up but if you are interested, there's a tutorial about finishing hoop backs here:

I use a slightly different technique that I find a bit easier, here's a tute for that Smiley.

I'm not online as much as I used to be, don't panic if it takes a while for me to reply to things Smiley.

It's very small -- just over 3 inches in diameter, making it easy to finish in a few hours. The slime trail was intentional, glad you noticed! Smiley I couldn't resist...

Thank you!! It's just over 3 inches in diameter, quite small! That's a great tutorial for finishing backs. I'll give it a try next time, thanks!
