I used my completed hoop to embroider something for another 'ible, please check it out too!
Step 1: You need...
- A plastic container with a lid that 'clicks' into place. E.g. a take-away container, or a small ice cream tub container
- A Stanley/Utility knife, or an X-acto knife. Any knife strong enough to cut through plastic
- Strong pair of scissors
- Nail File/Sandpaper (not shown)
- Duct tape (not shown)
- Wire/pipe cleaners
Step 2: Cut the container like so:
Use the knife, and take lots of care! If you're really young and nervous, or even if you're not so young and nervous, I suggest that you delegate this job to someone with steady hands.
Also, make sure you're cutting on a protected surface, so on lots of newspaper or a thick magazine.
Step 3: Filing and duct tape
It is kinda important to have smooth edges that won't catch on your precious fabric, so I do suggest one or the other.
