Embroidering florals and other designs at a very tiny size is fun and rewarding. They finish quickly and are often something you can wear when it's finished. But what do you do with the embroidery? Finish off your work with tiny hoops and framing pieces that are as adorable as your work.
These hoops aren't designed for stitching because most have a solid center that holds your work in place. But when you're talking about something that is only 1 to 2 inches, you probably want to stitch in a slightly larger hoop anyway.
