Simple Stitched Coffee Hoop

Today, I’m so excited to have Bev from Flamingo Toes! I’ve been reading Bev’s blog for a few years now and even got to meet her last year at SNAP! A few years ago Bev, shared how to make a little mummy dish towel, and today she is sharing her easy-to-make Simple Stitched Coffee Hoop.


Hello Sew Woodsy Readers! I am so excited to be here today!

My name is Bev and I blog over at Flamingo Toes. I love sharing all sorts of projects – sewing, jewelry, home dÈcor, recipes – and one of my favorite things – embroidery projects! I have a sweet little embroidery hoop project to share with you today – this “But First, Coffee” embroidery hoop art. It’s simple and quick and would look so perfect hanging next to your coffee maker!

It’s decorated with a cute little wool felt cup and a heart – all embroidered on a vintage sheet. (which I do quite often I will confess)

It would be sweet on any fabric and easy to match to your dÈcor too!

Stitched Coffee Hoop

So let’s get started! Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 1 8″ embroidery hoop
  • fabric for hoop
  • felt for cup
  • fabric scrap for heart
  • contrasting embroidery thread
  • disappearing ink marker
  • optional: fabric for wrapping hoop, felt for backing
  • But First, Coffee Embroidery Hoop Pattern

Start by printing out your pattern. Using a disappearing ink marker, trace the lettering and the steam swirls onto your fabric.

Stitch your letters using a backstitch. If you need instructions, you can check out my Embroidery Tips page – a backstitch is a great starter stitch if you haven’t done embroidery before!

Continue until all your lettering is stitched.

Using the pattern, cut out the cup shape from felt. Cut out a small heart from fabric as well. Stitch your cup and heart in place on the hoop using the pattern as placement. I used a simple running stitch for both.

If you want, wrap the outer ring of your embroidery hoop in a coordinating fabric and glue down the ends. This adds a little bit more color for fun.

Place your fabric in the hoop and trim the edges so there is about 1/2″ all around. Glue the fabric to the inside of the back of the hoop, and if you’d like, finish the back of the hoop with a circle of felt. That’s all there is to it!!

I hope you’ll give it a try!

I’d love for you to stop by Flamingo Toes sometime – I have lots more hoop projects if you would like to try something else!
