Treat a loved-up couple to our Happily Ever After Hoop. Create your very own fairytale ending with Carolyn Letten’s embroidery hoop. Made using appliqué and free motion stitches, this romantic project will also provide a brilliant opportunity for you to step up your machine embroidery skills. For beginners who need to ease into this, simply use a smaller hoop when free machining the flowers and gently move it around the fabric as required.

Essentials
  1. Fabric, cotton, light green, dark green, light pink, dark pink, orange, coral, aqua, printed florals, printed green
  2. Felt
  3. Lightweight iron-on interfacing
  4. Acid-free glue stick
  5. Tissue paper
  6. Embroidery hoop, 23cm
    1. Download and print the template from sewmag.co.uk. Cut a circle of aqua fabric, 38cm diameter. Place the outer hoop underneath the material, then lay the fabric centrally on top. Push the inner hoop down into place, then carefully tighten up the screw.

    2. Trace the words onto tissue paper, place it centrally in the hoop and secure with tape or a pin. Place a thin piece of felt, the same colour as the fabric, underneath the material behind the words. Use a dark turquoise thread to free machine embroider once over the lines. Tear the paper away, sew over them again and fill in the letters. Trim off any excess felt at the back of the hoop.

    3. Cut out the various flowers from plain fabric. From the prints, snip two pink flowers, one pink petal flower centre and eight mini flowers. Cut out eight big and two small dark green leaves. Snip out four big and four small light green leaves. Cut out five daffodil leaf tips from patterned green fabric. Back all of the elements with iron on interfacing.

    4. With the material still in the hoop and all of the pieces cut, arrange them in place in the hoop and stick them in place using small dabs of acid-free glue. Free motion machine embroider around all the flowers, using coordinating and contrasting threads. Reposition the hoop to sew around the edges of the design.

    5. Place the inner hoop underneath the finished design and push the outer hoop down on top of it. Pull the fabric taut whilst tightening the screw. Use a long double thread to hand-stitch a line of large running stitches, 2cm in from the raw edge all the way around. Pull the thread to gather up the material, then secure the end.
