I finished the stitching recently, but wasn't sure about the finishing. The kit came with a wooden hoop the size of the stitched circle, but not the directions on how to do it. I saw on the internet how someone finished a piece by cutting the fabric a little bigger than the hoop, then stitching the extra bit of fabric to a circle of felt. It wasn't as difficult as it looked. It's not perfect, but I think it is okay.
