How can I stabilize my embroidery without a hoop?

How do you stabilize fabric without an embroidery hoop?

All you have to do is maintain a decent tension on your fabric to avoid it from getting distorted. Another effective way of doing embroidery without a hoop is by using a scroll fabric. It helps in maintaining fabric tension and is also hands-free. You can put your focus elsewhere while stitching.

Can I use paper towel as stabilizer?

Simply place a layer of tissue paper under your fabric as you sew, that is between the fabric and feed dogs/plate. This will help stabilize it and give the feed dogs something a little more solid to grab onto. Once you’re done with your sewing you can just carefully rip the tissue paper away.

Can you reuse embroidery hoops?

Yes, hoops are reusable. There are tons of ways to use your embroidery hoops. If you do not want to use it as your frame for your projects, you can still repurpose it. You can use it as a DIY wreath for the holidays or transform it into wall decor.

What goes on the back of embroidery?

Under the embroidery, you’ll find a piece of white material (or black). That’s backing. Backing is a sheet of material that is hooped and embroidered along with the fabric you’re embroidering. This material acts as a stabilizer, supporting the fabric and stitches during the embroidery process.
