I have seen some embroidery hoop notice boards around and admired them, so I decided to make one today. This is also for my mum for Christmas.
Here's how I did it.
We had these old cork mats that were in the house when we got here. I knew they would come in handy.
I glued them to the embroidery hoop.
Filled in the gaps with some old pillow stuffing.
Covered the front with fabric and the back with cardboard.
And here it is.
