What you Need

Embroidery Hoop


Dovecraft Ribbons


How to Make

  1. Take the hoop apart and secure a length of Dovecraft twine around the inside hoop by tying a knot.


  1. Wrap the twine around the hoop crossing over in the centre. Once complete, secure the end of the twine to the inside hoop by tying a knot.


  1. Place the inner hoop back inside the outer hoop and tighten. Cut a length of your chosen Dovecraft ribbon and start to weave it in and out of the twine. Secure the next piece of ribbon to the end of the length you just used and weave this one in and out of the twine.


  1. Vary your design by using different ribbon designs and continue weaving until you’re happy with the look of your hoop.


The weaving effect on this embroidery hoop is so beautiful and will make a lovely, textured home décor piece this spring.
