Embroidering words by loveandasandwich Embroidering words by loveandasandwich
My process for embroidering words onto hoops:
Trace the outline of the hoop and cut out a piece of thin paper in the shape of the area you want the words to be in.
I go in with pencil first, then pen to make sure things look even.  Then pin down the paper and embroider right on top of my lines.  Once it’s all embroidered I carefully pull the paper out from underneath, using a pin to get the bits in between the letters. And it is finished!

I am so glad I'm not the only one that does that with paper. XD  I use tracing paper though, because it's easier to tear. :D

Wow, I'd be worried about ruining the stitch as I remove the paper
