I have a sweet little embroidery hoop project to share with you today – this “But First, Coffee” embroidery hoop art! It’s simple and quick and would look so perfect hanging next to your coffee maker!
I have a little coffee “station” – which is really just a corner of our preciously small counter space devoted to my Keurig and my little k-cup spinner. Now it’s dressed up with this simple embroidery stitched coffee hoop art – definitely an improvement!
This sweet hoop is decorated with a cute little wool felt cup and a heart – all embroidered on a vintage sheet.
It would be sweet on any fabric if vintage isn’t your thing, and super easy to match to your décor too!
So let’s get started! Here’s what you’ll need:
- One 8″ embroidery hoop
- fabric for hoop
- felt for cup
- fabric scrap for heart
- contrasting embroidery thread
- disappearing ink marker
- optional: fabric for wrapping hoop, felt for backing
- “But First, Coffee” Embroidery Hoop Pattern
Start by printing out your pattern. Using a disappearing ink marker, trace the lettering and the steam swirls onto your fabric.
Stitch your letters using a backstitch. If you need instructions, you can check out my Embroidery Tips page – a backstitch is a great starter stitch if you haven’t done embroidery before!
Continue until all your lettering is stitched.
Using the pattern, cut out the cup shape from felt. Cut out a small heart from fabric as well. Stitch your cup and heart in place on the hoop using the pattern as placement. I used a simple running stitch for both.
If you want, wrap the outer ring of your embroidery hoop in a coordinating fabric and glue down the ends. This adds a little bit more color for fun.
Place your fabric in the hoop and trim the edges so there is about 1/2″ all around. Glue the fabric to the inside of the back of the hoop, and if you’d like, finish the back of the hoop with a circle of felt. That’s all there is to it!!
I hope you’ll give it a try!
