This is one of the custom patterns I created for use with my Embroidery Class! The free patterns included in this instructable include one with cursive text, one with printed text, and one that is just the tool border so you can add your own text if you'd like!
I'm not including step-by-step instructions for stitching these patterns because I've already covered those extensively in my Embroidery Class. Embroidery is all about doing what feels good to you, so it's important to find which stitches and thickness of floss you like. :)
P.S. If you want to see how I made this pattern, and also learn all the stitches you can use to make it, be sure to check out my class. It's incredibly in-depth and should answer any questions you have!
Step 1: Tools + Materials
To make one of these final patterns, you'll need:

To Print the Patterns
Download and open the PDF files. When selecting print options, make sure the print is scaled at "full size" or "100%" - this will ensure you print the pattern at the right size.
Step 2: Share Your Hoop!
