I would just like to add for what it is worth. I never hoop anything. Just hoop tearaway and pin carefully around the hoop. Looking forward to seeing your work.
Thanks to all of the cuties let me comments here how to do the bibs. I have just completed 9 will add a photo of them later, Happy with them I placed the tearaway stabilizer first in the hoop then the pinned bib and WSS on top worked well THANKS AGAIN VAL
I use a sticky back tear away..hoop the tear away and stick the bib to it. Use WSS on top
I have never tried the sticky back stabilizer. Is it worth the purchase?
I would put the tearaway in the hoop and just use double sided tape to hold the bib in place. I would also put some WSS over the top.
Thanks yes this sounds the best way to go, after reading the other comments from other cuties
I would hoop your stabilizer and if you have a basting design, use it to attach the bib to the stabilizer.
Yes, I would also put WSS on top to hold the loops down. It will look much nicer.
I do this a lot these days. ❤️ Chris
that's how I do it also
Thanks will try the stabilizer and add the WSS on top as well because some of the deigns are more dense and they may need a bit extra so it will not pucker the towelling
i hate spray as it makes a mess for me i just hoop stabilizer and pin the outside of the bib with wee pins i buy at Walmart even if the needle hits one by mistake it keeps right on sewing****Works for me **Hugs
Thanks not really liking the sound of spray around the machine either, think I will try just the stabilizer first
I never spray the stabilizer while close to the machine. I usually step out of the room or open a window.
I have used temporary adhesive spray(very sparingly). I hoop the tearaway first, spray the tearaway then place the bib. I also use the basting stitch on my machine to hold it in place.
My method as well./
Thanks for that will try
If they have a plastic backing, I would use Scotch tape or painter's tape to hold toweling to the tearaway. Otherwise, pins work fine. WalMart has some inexpensive, small toweling bibs backed with plastic that just barely fit in my 4 x 4 hoop and I do not need tearaway behind that as they are stable enough!
Thanks they do not have plastic on the back just towelling same as front
