Tools and Materials for Washi Tape Embroidery Hoop Finish


Tools & Materials

  • Complete Cross Stitch Project – I used No One Hold 2022s Beer
  • Bamboo Hoops – Choose a size appropriate to frame your cross stitch pattern
  • Washi Tape – Pick a color or design that compliments your cross stitch pattern. The bigger your hoop, the more tape you will need.
  • Scissors – embroidery scissors will work, but you might get adhesive from the tape stuck on your scissors.

Step 1: Preparing the Washi Tape

Open up your washi tape and find the end. Use washi tape that has a backing. This will help you handle the tape without touching the sticky part and making it less sticky.

Step 2: Open Embroidery Hoop

If you haven’t already, separate the inner and outer pieces of your embroidery hoop. Set aside the inner piece. We will be decorating the outer piece only.

Step 3: The First Loop Around the Hoop

Gently peel away some of the backing off the end of your washi tape. Place the end of the tape at the end of the underside of the outer piece of your embroidery hoop. When starting to wrap the washi tape around your embroidery hoop, go straight around the hoop once so that the washi tape comes back around to where you started and sticks to itself.
