I think it turned out okay, no?
DIY Embroidery Hoop
Yesterday when I bought supplies for embroidering, I completely forgot to buy a hoop! haha silly me (: so I looked around my house & tried to find something that could be used as a hoop, & guess what I found.....a jar lid, and it worked out perfectly!
All you really need for this is a jar that has a lid with two parts like the one shown in the picture above, & a rubber band that will fit nice and tight around the lid. You just place your fabric over the lid then wrap the rubber band around, & voila! an instant embroidery hoop!
