Do you have an embroidery machine with a 4x4 hoop? If so, I just have one thing to say...
Sure, there are machines with bigger hoops on the market. But don't feel limited by a 4x4 hoop because there are so many things you can do!
You might even say the smaller, the cuter. 😊 Here are a few ideas to help you get started!
Fun, huh? Here are some other Digital Downloads you can make in a 4x4 hoop!

Remember to check the required hoop sizes before buying any embroidery design online. 😊

So, have you gotten the idea that there's a lot you can do with a 4x4 hoop? And I'm not even finished! Here are some other ideas from collections you can find wherever Kimberbell products are sold.

With some of these collections, you won't be able to make every design with a 4x4 hoop. But you will be able to make the smallest sizes. Remember, check the packaging to see what hoop sizes are required!
Honestly, friends, now that I think about it...most of the machine embroidery I do is with a 4x4 hoop because those projects are easy gifts that don't take long to whip out. And that's where I am in life right now!
Be sure to watch for upcoming Kimberbell products in the year ahead, because we have PLANS that you and your 4x4 hoop can look forward to. 😊
