About This Class

In this easy-to-follow class, you'll learn how to create your own "snap tab" keychain using your embroidery machine. If you've never made an in-the-hoop project before, this is perfect! I want you to be comfortable hooping stabilizer, pinning fabric, and knowing the steps of basic in-the-hoop projects so you can start whipping through them in no time.

Looks like fun! It would be helpful to see how the back was anchored before the hoop was replaced in the machine for final steps. One end is pinned but how is the other end kept from just falling down below? Thank you!
Awesome class!

My name is Melissa Harris and I'm the creative director and digitizer behind I love creating embroidery designs for snap tabs, applique, in the hoop projects and more, but I've found that my real passion is in education and teaching people how to use their embroidery machines for fun, charity, and/or profit! Join my classes to learn how to make some of your favorite embroidery projects.
