I like starching cotton or use a light iron-on Vilene (the same I use for sewing) and then hoop it with a tear-away.
How about "sticky back vilene?" It feels like paper except it's sticky on one side and washes away. If you are wanting to do a little experimenting, I'd try one layer on the back and just a topper of two layers fo regurlar vilene. While stitch, if you don't feel that that is enough stabilizer, you could slip a tearaway under the hoop and just float it there. You'd have to wash it and the sticky vilene is more expensive than tearaways. Because the tearaway would be under the vilene, when the vilene washes away the tearaway should be easier to remove.
I find that when stitching on light weight fabric I get puckers because the thread tension is so tight that it makes the fabric bunch up. I was scolded for fooling with my new machine's tensions as they are supposed to be "automatic" so I don't do that any more.
You might also try a fusible knit interfacing like what is used to back baby onesies after embroidering to keep the embroidery from scratching the baby's skin...one is called Cloud, but Pellon Easy Knit or their Knit & Stable work well and I get it at JoAnn's with a coupon. It does not show through the fabric, does not really add any weight to the fabric, but stabilizes extremely well and really helps prevent puckers...
I think I have something like that from Sulky that I put on the inside of onsies. Thank you.
Forgot to add...I use this with a tear away stabilizer or WSS depending upon the application...I have not used with a cut away...never seen the need...
Why don't you try a lightweight fusible interfacing-what we use for interfacing collars and things while sewing. There are super light ones, that will not add weight, but really stabilize.
Cuties are so good at helping. I would not have thought to use "sewing" articles for embroidery. Thank you.
I love this quote. where can I find this design?
Thank you. It is my own design.
I use WSS for almost every project now. I would do 2 layers with your fabric. Hugs. Nan
That is something that I had not thought of using. Thank you.
I guess I would use canvas as the fabric and then not need stabilizer. Maybe...
Agree a firmer fabric would give a better result.
I might try that with the one I do. The client would like it to be on quilter's cotton to match the other fabric she is going to use. Thank you for the suggestion.
Our peacher/pastor spoke about prayer and being thankful in prayer this morning (Philippians4: 6-7). This was the very thing he asked the congregation.
Oh I forgot about your question. Sorry I can't advise, my experience is always trial and error.
God works in mysterious ways. This phrase has been randomly popping into my head.
