embroidery hoop hello sign

Welcome your friends, family and guests with this Embroidery Hoop Hello Sign! Watch their faces when you tell them you made everything but the hoop and fabric!
Step 1

First, click here for the design in Cricut® Design Space™.

Step 2

Click ‘Make It’ in the upper right corner of your screen.

Step 3

In your preview screen, check ‘Mirror’ in the left panel below the black mats to reverse the images.

Step 4

Now, click ‘Continue’ in the bottom right corner of your screen and choose your material.

Step 5

Place the iron-on material, shiny-side down, onto your cutting mat. Load the mat into your Cricut® machine, then press the blinking Cricut® icon to start cutting.
TIP: For designs with more than one material type, color or pattern be sure to watch the left panel of your preview screen to know which to place on your mat when cutting.

Step 6

Once your machine is done cutting each layer, use scissors to cut your design from the iron-on material roll. Next, use your weeder tool to remove all the excess material around and inside your design. You’ll be left with just the reversed design on the clear plastic carrier sheets, which are slightly sticky.

Step 7

Place your first felt sheet onto your cutting mat. Change the material to ‘Felt’.
TIP: For best results, click ‘Edit Tools’ and choose the rotary blade; then switch out the housing in clamp B.

Step 8

Repeat Step 7 for each felt color. Set felt pieces aside.

Step 9

Preheat your EasyPress™ to the appropriate temperature for your material and, if needed, adjust the timer.
TIP: See the Quick Reference Guide, included with your EasyPress™, for temperature and times or click here for an interactive guide. You can also use an iron to press your material. Just follow the instructions included in the iron-on material packaging.

Step 10

Place your white fabric piece on top of your EasyPress™ mat and then preheat the fabric for 5 seconds.

Step 11

Place the carrier sheet with the stripes, so it’s sticky-side down, and place it onto the fabric. You should be able to see the layer through the carrier sheet, just as it will appear once ironed.

Step 12

Place your EasyPress™ on top of the design, apply the appropriate pressure for your material, and press the time button. Once it beeps, flip over your shirt and press for another 15 seconds. Carefully peel off the carrier sheet.

Step 13

Repeat Steps 10-12 for your grey fabric and “hello” design.

Step 14

Now, assemble the flowers. For the small yellow succulent, run the Moss Green ink pad over the edges of each piece. Use hot glue to layer all of the pieces from the larger piece up to smallest.

Step 15
For the large pink flower, fold five pieces in half and add a little glue to hold in place. Fold the half in half and again, add a little glue. Glue four of the folded flower pieces on top of the sixth flower shape. Glue the fifth, scalloped side facing up, in the center of the four. Set aside.
Step 16

For all other flowers, starting from the outer end, roll the felt around the “coiled” flower shape until you get to the center circle. Add a little hot glue to the felt as you roll.; then add a fair amount of hot glue to the circle and push the rolled flower into the hot glue. Let the glue cool. Set the felt flowers aside.

Step 17

Disassemble each embroidery hoop and set the outer parts aside for now.

Step 18

Place the inner hoop of the larger one over the iron-on striped white fabric and trace the circle with a marking pencil. Repeat with the smaller inner hoop on the grey fabric.

Step 19

Cut out the circles.

Step 20

Working in small sections at a time, add a line of hot glue to the side of the inner embroidery hoops and attach the fabric circles to the hoops.

Step 21

Re-assemble the outer hoops around the inner hoops (with fabric attached).

Step 22

Hot glue the smaller “hello” embroidery hoop to the front of the striped hoop over the open space.


Step 23

Hot glue the felt leaves and flowers to the front of the grey fabric on the smaller hoop, below the “hello”.

Step 24
Finally, turn over and hot glue the pink tab to the back of the outer hoop to use as a hanger.
