itty bitty embroidery hoops

Itty Bitty Hoops


Happy Labor Day, fellow Americans! And happy Monday to everyone else!

Back when I was planning my summer class about re-sized embroidery, I found The Creative Muster. Laura makes these itty bitty embroidery hoops that were perfect for a little class bonus! Can you see how tiny they are? Just one inch!

They were too cute to pass up, so I bought a couple packs. And then recently, some new designs came out, and Laura sent me some samples! I've been playing with them a bit, and here's how they look:

I love the different shapes, and how even just adding fabric makes them extra special. The large oval and the small flower work the same way as the one-inch circle: You stitch your embroidery first, then insert it into the hoop, as they have a solid piece to hold the fabric.

But then there's the two-inch hoop. It has a ring that fits in the back, which means you can actually work in the hoop! I've never had a hoop so very small before...but it really works well! They all do, really. In fact, you need to use quilting weight or lighter fabric in these, because the fit is good and tight to hold your work.

If you like itty bitty, teeny tiny embroidery, be sure to visit The Creative Muster!

    These are really cute! I've been searching all over for tiny embroidery hoops for a project and came across your site. I tried to go to her Etsy shop but she's on maternity leave. Would it be possible for you to tell me how much a 3 pack of the 1-inch hoops cost? I can't wait until September to find out!

    1. When I purchased a set last summer they were $10 Australian for the set. If you need some before her shop opens again, I have an extra set here and would be happy to work out a trade of some kind!
