How do I frame my embroidery?

What do I put on the back of embroidery?

Under the embroidery, you’ll find a piece of white material (or black). That’s backing. Backing is a sheet of material that is hooped and embroidered along with the fabric you’re embroidering. This material acts as a stabilizer, supporting the fabric and stitches during the embroidery process.

Do you leave embroidery in the hoop?

If the hoop is large enough to encompass the entire design, you can get away with leaving the fabric in the hoop, but it’s a good idea to loosen the tension a bit when you’re done stitching. If your hoop is smaller than your design, you definitely want to take the fabric out when you’re done stitching for the day.
