    I plan to make Phulkari stole.

    For border, I wish to do simple embroidery stitch (as I am learning)

    But I just realized, embroidery hoop won't fit.

    What are your experiences with embroidering WITHOUT embroidery hoop?

    Do you think it is better to embroider WITHOUT hoop?

    I really wish to learn from your experiences.

    You need the base fabric stay stretched while you do embroidery. Otherwise, not only would the process be tough to impossible, even if you achieve that, you might end up causing wrinkles in the finished product.
    If a hoop cannot fit, use a rectangular FRAME. You can buy these online in both India and forin.

    Any type of embroidery can be done without a frame . in hand waste actual practice in the olden days.
    Yes the fabric might be limp or you might have to adjust the way you work or holder.. But it might be tough but not impossible. If you make a habit of it at the start itself.. Then there would be less hassle and they are travel friendly too.
    I cross stitch and do other sorts of laces too.. And do it all in hand.
    Mann aur dimaag lagaane ki deri hey.
    Phirdekhiye !!
