    What stabilizer do you use on Embroidering on flour sack towels

    I sometimes use tear away but when the design is all words I donít like having to pick all that stuff off. Have you used anything that works better. Tried Wash Away and it works okay but donít like having to wash it out...land not sure how that holds up after washing a lot. Any help,appreciated!

    I use a ter away on towels or a water soluble that dissolves when it gets wet.

    I use tear away, try to pick a simple design unless I'm in the mood to pick stabilizer with tweezers!

    I like to embroider on a strip of light fabric that I can see to the bottom of the towel. Or starch it a lot, use a light fusible interfacing that can be mostly peeled off and cut just around the design?

    A little help here. Lots of different projects so you can see the recommendations.

    The results are usually better with lighter designs.

    I use an iron on cut away mesh that is very light weight. I usually use lighter designs on flour sack towels, I just cut a piece a bit bigger than the design, iron to back of towel where design will go, and hoop towel.

    I use a light weight mesh style cut away stabilizer on my flour sack. I used to use a tear away but sometimes is would tug on the stitches.
