Embroidery Hoop ... Thinlits Die Cutting Template by Olivia Rose, made by Sizzix.
This set of Thinlits templates features two pieces, one is the round insert to cut out stitch holes into a circle (the inside piece from the hoop), the other is the round hoop complete with the tightening screw!
To use : Cut the hoop shape out of cream cardboard then using tan ink, colour the outer piece to look like wood (leaving the inner circle cream, for the "fabric"). Using a silver paint or pen, colour the tightening screw to make it look like a real hoop. Cut holes into your circle of fabric using the die template.
To complete the illusion, use real embroidery cotton (thread) or tapestry yarn (or crochet and knitting wool) to stitch cross stitch, running stitch, backstitch, French knots, zigzag or any other stitch... giving you the total look of embroidery still in the hoop! Other ideas are in the photos :)
This set contains 2 templates.
Sizes approx : hoop is 3 3/8" x 3 3/4", inner circle is 3 1/8" x 3 1/8".
Thinlits are wafer thin chemically etched die templates designed to cut, emboss or stencil a single sheet of cardstock, paper, fine metallic foil or vellum. Because of their fine details, Thinlits may require up to three passes to cut all the intricate pieces. If extra help is needed for easier separation of the die-cut shape from the template, place wax paper between the Thinlits die and your material and then roll through your preferred machine.
Thinlits are designed for use with the Sizzix die cutting and embossing machines (eg, Big Shot Pro and Vagabond) and also compatible with most hand-turned die cutting machines (eg, Cuttlebug).
Thinlits are also able to emboss when combined with an Impressions Pad and Silicone Rubber sheet (it presses rather than cuts due to the less pressure).
To stencil, trace around the shapes with pen, pencil or ink. Apply ink to the die cutting edges to print and emboss at the same time.
This set includes a handy plastic storage envelope. For easy identification, trim off the printed label and slip into the envelope.
