Do you have a home craft business? Is there an OPEN sign on your door when you are working from home? Maybe its time for one! I have a brand new design in my store that will make your crafting area official. This In The Hoop Open Sign stitches out in a 5x7 hoop and needs minimal fabric and batting. I bet you have some remnants that need to be used up and this is a great project for that purpose.
Here are all of the materials I used for this sample. I did add a mid weight interfacing to the front and back fabric to make the sign a little sturdier. You don't have to do that if you don't want to as there is low loft batting in the directions. The batting will give it some structure as well. You can either use a needle and thread to close the project up or some hem tape. It finishes quickly and you can customize it by changing the fabric and thread colors to match your space. It is generic so it will work for any kind of business.
Here it is on my Happy Multi needle embroidery machine. I am using a Mighty Hoop. I love to use them whenever I can because they keep everything in place while stitching.
Ribbon to hang the sign is added before you place the back fabric in the hoop. I used masking tape to keep it from shifting. You choose what type and color of ribbon also. You can see even though this is a plain little sign, there are so many options to customize it. Maybe you have friends with small businesses also? They would love a sign you made especially for them. I think one other place this sign would be perfect is a teacher's classroom. The Pre K Or Kindergarten rooms will usually have centers for active play. This In The Hoop Open Sign would be a cute little addition to playtime.
I filmed a tutorial video you can watch below. It takes you quickly through the entire project. I hope you have enjoyed this post, share what you learn and are generous with what you create. Someone will appreciate your hard work.
