Mini Embroidery Hoop Fabric Covered Necklace
I just love mini embroidery hoops and I think they have so much potential to make beautiful projects. My take on a mini embroidery hoop is to make a fabric covered necklace.
I have chosen to use the lovely Craft Cotton Co blue geometric fat quarters. This fabric collection is delicate and pretty with a contemporary feel.
What you need
Mini embroidery hoop – I chose a fun cat shape found on an online auction site.
Necklace chain or jewellery cotton- I chose a faux rose gold chain from Hobbycraft
Hot glue gun
Needle and tread
Embroidery floss- If you wish to add extra detail
The embroidery hoop piece
Cut your fabric larger than the shape of part A using a similar method as if you were doing a self-covered button.
Here is your chance to create your own embroidery design if you want to or add any beads, buttons or embellishments to your fabric.
Run a gathering stitch close to the edge of your fabric shape. Place part A in the centre of your fabric on the wrong side. Pull the treads to tighten the shape around part A.
Using your glue gun with care adhere the fabric to part A.
Using your glue gun with care, glue the outer rim of part C and place part B on top of part C
Using your glue gun with care apply plenty of glue to the centre of part B.
Place part A right side up to part B and press firmly so it adheres.
Attach your necklace chain or jewellery thread through the hole.
You can now do a happy dance and wear your me made necklace with pride!
Hope you enjoyed this project
