Open up and separate the two pieces of the embroidery hoop and place the plaid fabric inside it, tightening it closed at the top.
Trim the excess fabric on the corners. Make sure to leave enough of fabric to secure it to the back of the embroidery hoop.
Carefully add a short line of hot glue along the inside rim of the embroidery hoop and fold the excess fabric down onto the glue. Continue working around the rim of the embroidery hoop, adding glue and then folding down the excess fabric.
