How to Make an Embroidery Hoop Sewing Tidy

How to Make an Embroidery Hoop Tidy #Sewing #DIY

As you may remember I am tidying my sewing room – and I’m making good progress, although I didn’t know just how much fabric I have collected until now!!

What I have realised is that I need a place for everything – and especially for those things that I use a lot and keep leaving in different places – and then spend lots of time looking for them.

My solution is a ‘tidy’ on an embroidery hoop – for my glasses, tape measure and scissors.

I have used my Big Shot machine and Sizzix Bigz™ Die – Flower Layers #4 – to cut some flowers to decorate

Top Tip!

This is a really quick and easy make – and you can stitch it by hand or machine.

How to make

1. Cut a 30 centimetre square from the white and the blue spot fabric.

2. Fold the blue fabric in half, wrong sides together, to make a rectangle. Press the fold.

3. Pin the white lace three millimetres below the fold and stitch in place.

4. Place the blue spot fabric on top of the white square, matching the bottom edge.

5. Stitch the fabrics together, from the fold to the bottom, with two rows of stitching, 10 centimetres from each side – to make pockets.

6. Cut two 15 centimetre squares from the white fabric

7. Fuse the bondaweb squares onto the wrong side of one pink square, remove the paper backing and place the other pink square wrong side onto the bondaweb to make the fabric double sided.

8. Repeat with the white fabric.

9. Cut flowers from the white and pink fabric, using the Big Shot and Bigz Die.

10. Cut a 23 centimetre circle from the white felt – I drew around the inside of the bigger hoop.

11. Loosen the screw on the hoop, place the fabric between the two rings – make sure that the pockets are straight in the hoop, and then tighten the screw and pull any loose fabric to the back.

12. On the front of the hoop arrange the flower layers to create two flowers and place them on near the edge of the hoop and stitch a button in the middle of the flower to hold in place. Instead of buttons you could use beads to fix the flowers in place.

13. Turn the hoop over to the back and trim the fabric to about 1.5 centimetres from the edge of the hoop.

14. Place the felt circle over the back and over stitch in place to neaten.

I’m going to use a picture hook to hang this on the wall and now I will know where to find those elusive scissors, tape measure and glasses!!

Top Tips

  • You can vary the size depending on what you want to use it for. You could make it for children, using fun fabrics, to encourage them to put things away.
  • Instead of buttons you could use beads to fix the flowers in place.
  • It would also make a lovely mother’s day present.

I hope you like it – because I’ve had fun making it.

Now just a bit more tidying and then a cup of tea!

Happy sewing!
