If these are for a lady, I think it would be cute to embroider at the hem of the shorts in a larger font - not so fidgety!
I had thought about the shorts - but, the legs have a fine lace around them, making up the hem and they are very short. I appreciate the suggestion! Hugs!
I would use a sticky water soluble stabilizer, pin around and then also use the tack down box around the design once on the machine. Good luck. Hugs. Nan
Great suggestions - I am nervous about this!!
I have to remember this advise.
This sounds scary!!My only thought is if you could get some similar or slippery fabric and try out a few different ways of doing it. Maybe if you can find a bridal shop or dressmaker they would have some small scraps ??? Just remember to use the smallest hoop you can for the design. Good luck and please let us know how they came out.
Smallest hoop is a great idea! Thanks!
I am not sure if this will help. When I do FSL I use cut outs of the rubbery material (Shelf Liners). I lay down the hoop and mark the outline of the frame which I cut out about 2-3 inches wide. I place that between the frame and material. That helps with slipping. Hope this makes sense. Good luck
another idea is to use WSS and cotton material to start the patch. After having embroidered on the material you can wash out the WSS and then create a patch by using a fusible (both sides) to place where you want it and stitching with sewing machine a decorative stitch around the edge.
Thanks bunches!!! I appreciate any help on this!
