    Use a stabilizer, even freezer paper if you don't have any. What is the fabric your sewing on? calla

    Some nappy fabrics do better if you place a layer of light, washaway stabilizer on the top.

    Make sure you use a stabilizer on the back too.
    The lighter weight the fabric, the heavier the stabilizer :D:D:D

    I got a great book on this topic called:

    Calligraphy with Thread: using a zigzag stitch and a regular sewing machine by Nancy Kazlauckas

    I haven't tried it yet but I read the book cover to cover and it is well written and explains everything.
