you will need

+ mini hoop necklace kit – available from dandelyne

+ Liberty Tana Lawn in Betsy P – find it here

+ embroidery thread to match

+ embroidery needle

+ scissors

+ glue & brush

step 1

Move the hoop over the fabric to help choose which section you would like to feature in your necklace


step 2

Embellish using embroidery thread. We’ve chosen the red flower as a focal point and used a simple satin stitch. Keep the thread at the back as minimal and tidy as possible.


step 3

Place the hoop over your miniature artwork and use a pencil to trace around the outside of the hoop.


step 4

Cut approx. 1cm around the pencil line.


step 5

Flip the fabric over so that the wrong side is facing upward and place the small disc in the centre of the fabric


step 6

Snip into the fabric around the circle and use glue to secure the fabric to the disc. Check the front as you go to ensure it is smooth.

step 7

Turn the disc right side up and place the hoop over your creation. Tighten the bolt at the top of the hoop to secure the disc.

step 8

Turn the hoop over and use glue to attach the larger wooden disc to finish

Allow to dry and your new necklace is ready to wear!
