You asked: How do you frame embroidery without a hoop?

Can you reuse embroidery hoops?

Yes, hoops are reusable. There are tons of ways to use your embroidery hoops. If you do not want to use it as your frame for your projects, you can still repurpose it. You can use it as a DIY wreath for the holidays or transform it into wall decor.

What do you do with finished embroidery pieces?

Make A Patch

A great way to make a finished embroidery more functional is to make it into a patch that you can sew onto clothing. Trim the extra fabric into a circle or square. Depending on what kind of fabric you used, you’ll want to make sure to prevent any fraying from occurring.

How do you mount an embroidery card?

Cut two pieces of mount board: a larger one for the back mount and another to fit the mini embroidery. Cover the back mount with fabric of choice. Glue a piece of felt/thin batting on to the card to be used for the embroidery and position it ensuring it is nicely centered – pin in place to hold before mounting.

Should counted cross stitch be framed with glass?

I highly recommend glass as it will prevent incidental dust and oils from getting on the piece. You just spent hours making it – protect it! The glass (if you get UV glass), can prevent the piece from fading, which is very important as the dyes used may not all fade at the same rates.
