framing in the hoop
i don't know why but when it comes to my crafts
i am a neat freak
so when i did an embroidery for a recent swap i just couldn't bear to leave the messy stitching exposed,
also i had cut the fabric too small to lace it onto the hoop, i searched for a tutorial to finish off your work in a hoop but couldn't find one, so this is what i came up with

thanks for sharing this very informative how-to ^_^
i tried to teach myself embroidery a while back (of course, then i didnt have the real hoop so i used a bottomless cake tin and tied my fabric to it with elastic XD) but since then have gotten all the right stuff and am learning properly. cant wait until i have something nice enough to frame in a hoop :)

i've tried to edit this tute but can't seem to do it!

in steps 3 & 4 i've said to cut a disc of fabric 2" bigger but it should be 1" larger than the hoop size - sorry!
