Thanks everyone. I feel more comfortable trying this after reading your comments!
I use silicone lubricant spray on the vinyl first it helps it to slip, I"ve used it on other fabrics too, does not leave a mark on fabric...wendy
You can't pin it down because holes will stay there. I use tape. It's very easy, in fact I found it's easier to embroider vinyl than to sew it.
As dailylaundry said, nothing too dense. You won't need a lot of understitching either.
I embroider on vinyl quite a bit - I do try not to use dense designs - and I do slow my machine down. But, I don't use any special needle or anything like that. If you mouse click on my name and then hit projects - you'll see some the the vinyl stitching I have done. Good luck! Hugs, Laura
Thanks! I'll have a look.
quite simply, you need nothing the special follow :-)
It is quite easy to embroider on vinyl...I made some ITH Hand Saniziter holders made out of vinyl...three layers stitched together beautifully...no special needle or threads needed.
Yes, I remember your hand sanitizers.
