Step One: Hoop white or light cream polyester felt with a layer of cut-away stablizer. Embroider the design.

Step Two: Take the embroidery out of the hoop. With a thin graphic pencil, or disappering fabric marker, draw an outline 1/2" from the edge of embroidery. Leave 2"-3" under the bottom edge of the embroidery.

Step Three: Cut away the excess fabric along the marked lines. Place the embroidered part onto another piece of felt and use it as a template to cut out an identically shaped piece. This will be the backing of the project. We made it out of white felt as well, but you can use absolutely any color.

Step Four: Cut a piece of Velcro tape slightly smaller than the length of the lower line of the embroidery. Open the tape and stitch one part to the back of the embroidered piece. Stitch along the lower edge of the embroidery about 1/4" from it.
