I am sorry what I thought was in the hoop is different than others think, I was thinking that the trim done in the hoop was ITH design, any one thinks you can do a whole box in the hoop is dreaming, and you don't need to be so mean about it. I loved the design and I didn't have a problem finishing them by sewing.

I don't think anyone was trying to be mean , They should say that in the description before you buy

This is not a reflection on you, dday, and I am happy you were happy with your purchase. All I am saying is that if there is hand or machine sewing required to complete the "In The Hoop" project, there should be some mention of it in the purchase disclosure...especially when they infer that it is done in the hoop with no raw edges inside...

Yeah Bev..you are so right...so frustrating that they are not really In the Hoop projects...very disappointing...they don't say anything about having to construct them on the regular sewing machine...same with the Christmas Stocking and the Christmas potholders...Lots of comments about how they are totally lined inside with no raw edges...no mention that ALL OF THE CONSTRUCTION TO FINISH THEM needs to be done on your sewing machine or by hand...If you are really looking for In the Hoop projects...you will be seriously disappointed! I will pass on their designs in the future! Totally not FULL DISCLOSURE!

Sorry for venting here...but I don't like being mislead..

Okay, but wondering how one would expect to sew a square box entirely in the hoop? I agree it should have been mentioned about the final construction, but perhaps they thought it was understood?

Sorry, can't go back and edit to add--like tissue boxes, whose sides are made ith, but need to be sewn together after the pieces are done.

When the say it is done ITH and entirely finished with no raw edges inside...one comes to expect that is the case...If there is hand sewing or machine sewing, I feel it should be disclosed...and the tissue cases I have seen do state that they are finished on the sewing machine or by hand...and there are lots of designs where the previous hooping is joined with the next hooping all in the hoop...full disclosure, that is all I am asking.

Sorry, editing just doesn't always come out correctly
