I find this embroidery hoop hanging shelf such a great idea: simple and striking! :)
Isn’t the embroidery hoop with pressed flowers nice? :)
However I think that I would prefer to make another letter like an ‘u’ e.g. ;-)
Embroidery Hoop with Pressed Flowers (Pressed Floral Hoops)

An embroidery hoop clock is nothing else than a clock in an embroidery hoop ;-)
A nice idea, isn’t it?
Beautiful, the embroidery hoop monogram, isn’t it? :)
I find that a self-made Hula Hoop is exactly the right thing to burn off the winter fat ;-)
Once I’ve seen somewhere (but I don’t remember, where ;-() how somebody made an embroidery hoop from magazine paper.
On the photo you see how it looks. I used quite stiff advertising paper and the hoop became very robust.
This way I can make fast and cheap embroidery hoops in different sizes :)
- Paper, e.g. advertising paper
It should be strong and may not stain(!) the fabric.
- Log or dowel
I used a 8mm knitting needle
- Drinking glass or the like with the required diameter
That’s what you do:
Select appropriate paper sheets.
Roll and fold the paper sheets to paper strips of equal width (see tutorial here).
Coil one paper strip firm around the glass and fix with tape.
Tape the hoop very well.
Slip the hoop over the glass again and coil the second strip of paper very firmly around the first hoop, tape very well, too.
These are both hoops, one can be slipped exactly over the other.
Put the fabric into the embroidery hoop and embroider.
I didn’t iron the fabric, but it’s firmly tightened into the hoop.
That’s the way everything looks from the backside.
Have fun with your embroidery :)
