I decided to use up some of my supplies leftover from my Candy Cane Wreath for today’s project- an embroidery hoop Christmas sign!

This was super easy!

I started by cutting two squares of my white fabric that were large enough to fit inside the embroidery hoop. I also cut some strips of red fabric to a 2″ width.

The white fabric was cheap/thin so I did two layers- one layer would be fine if your fabric isn’t too thin. You could see through my white fabric with only one layer.

Supplies: Embroidery hoop, red and white fabric.

I pinned my stripes in place, measuring the gap between them to make sure they were approximately 3″ apart.

Sew each strip in place using a straight stitch.

If you want the edges to fray a bit, you can pull a few of the threads.

Cut and weed your HTV. Make sure you cut the right SIZE for your hoop.

Now you want to apply your HTV. I put my fabric in the hoop to get an idea on placement. Held it in place, removed hoop, then pressed with my Cricut EasyPress.

I use a Teflon sheet between my HTV and EasyPress.

The one thing I realized pretty quick was that any vinyl over a fringe didn’t stick quite as well. It’s on there, but it wouldn’t probably stay on if I was washing it. No big deal because it’s decor, not clothing.

If you’re worried about it, you may want to consider placing your HTV different or you could use fabric paint instead of fabric strips of fabric to create the candy cane effect.

Once you’ve finished applying the HTV per the instructions from Cricut, place your fabric back in the hoop and use another strip of the red fabric to add a loop to hang it.
