INSTRUCTIONS

BEGIN
Download and print the abstract shapes sketch. Transfer the pattern onto your fabric. Secure the fabric with the hoop.

CONTINUE
Begin filling the shapes with your chosen yarn, using thick thread for the larger shapes. The larger areas can be filled with French knots or satin stitch and the squares and rectangles can be created with straight stitches using thinner yarn.

Embroidery thread or thin yarn can be used for the straight lines.

Position the French knots on the circles. These can be made larger by doubling or tripling the knots.

END
Once you have finished your embroidery, make sure all the threads are finished off and secured with knots on the back of the hoop and tighten the screw of the hoop with a screwdriver making sure there are no wrinkles in the fabric. Trim the edge of the fabric all the way around the hoop leaving approx. 15mm[1”] of material. Place glue around the inner wooden hoop and neatly stretch the fabric over and stick down. The hoop is now ready to be hung.
