Instructions:

1. Stretch different colors of fabric in five embroidery hoops. Trim excess fabric from the backs of hoops.

2. Choose three hoops for the letters “J-O-Y.”

3.  Create letters by selecting favorite fonts from the computer, lettering book or creating your own. Enlarge to desired size and trace on to tracing paper. Flip over tracing paper, position where desired on fabric and trace outline of letter to transfer monogram. Refer to photo.  Cut out letters in contrasting fabrics. If desired, use a chalk pencil to create letters on fabrics before cutting out.

4. Squeeze small amount of glue around back edges of letters and press onto centers of hoops, smoothing in place.

5. Let dry.

6. Hang as desired.
