How to make

You will also need:

* FREE downloadable embroidered wreath template

* Fabric of choice

Step 1

Cut a circle of Evenweave approximately 12″ (30 cm) in diameter. Use an iron to remove any creases.

Step 2

Fit centrally within the hoop and tighten the screw.

Step 3

Transfer the design from the template (see below) to the thin paper and tape to the fabric centrally.

Step 4

Stitch directly through the paper in the following order: thread, ribbon then beads. We used a simple straight stitch.

Step 5

Carefully tear away the paper trying not to pull the threads.

Step 6

To finish, sew an even running stitch around the edge of the Evenweave and pull the threads to gather them neatly on the back of the hoop. Tie or knot the ends.

Top Tip: to conceal the gathered reverse, a circle of white felt can be stitched or glued to the back of the work.
