Not sure if this is the place to post this, but I am rather new to quilting as well as machine embroidery. I am planning on combining both, but his is just about embroidery.
Ok, I have done some embroidery designs on a cheaper fleece blanket and towels for practice purposes and now I am ready to do things that count :wink: . So I understand that the embroidery density makes the area embroidered stiff and of course with the stabilizer even stiffer. So, I tried it with a great quality of water soluble stabilizer and when I washed the fleece, it looked ok, but there was a little hole in the one little place where the design met the cheap fleece. Also it was a little "wavy" if you know what I mean, but I have noticed most embroidery on wearables tends to do this. Now was this because the embroidery weakened the cheap fleece or because I used the WSS and when it washed out it left the material even weaker. Should I have used a tear away stabilizer?
Any thoughts? Thanks a bunch!
