Felt and Embroidery Hoop Project

I completed my first felt and embroidery hoop project. It is for a friend who is having a precious boy in May. I completed the back off by doing a running stitch around the extra linen fabric, pulled it tight and knotted it off. I then cut a piece of felt to fit the back and sewed it to the linen for a finished look. To dress the hoop up a little bit, I glued on ric-rac around the hoops edge.  I think it turned out well for a first try. 🙂

My inspiration to even try felt and embroidery together came from Lime Riot. This tutorial link was my first introduction, http://limeriot.blogspot.com/2011/06/felt-embroidery-tutorial.html.
The Trouble with Crafting, http://thetroublewithcrafting.blogspot.com/2011/05/finishing-hoop-with-felt.html,  showed me how to finish off the back with felt. Of course, both of these ladies have a much more professional look. But, hey, it’s my first try! 🙂 I’m happy with it.
