    oooohhh....good idea...I have some stabilizer but it not fusible...think I will try the freezer paper..I have that on hand too!

    I can buy stabilizers wholesale, just have NO clue what I would need...way too many choices out there! ANd they are so costly...
    just use printer paper...I save the misprints and other pages I do not want for this. I works fine. I used it the other day to do decorative stitching around the neck and hems of teeshirts. I have used it for years and only go to the more expensive stuff when doing machine embroidery in a hoop.

    I did see that there were small pieces. I wonder, too, if spray glue might help such as 505 or Sullivan's.

    Have you tried stretching the fabric in a small embroidery hoop, if the attachment will fit into it.

    it would take a fairly large hoop...that foot is big!

    No, I have not, but I am gathering a list of things to try, and experiment with!

    The best stabilizer I have found for this sort of thing is coffee filters, and they are not expensive

    NO..this is a regular foot for ANY machine...well Low shank anyway...it just screws on like a walking foot...

    I am using different threads and have found that the fabric will tell you what thread IT wants...LIke the thicker thread on the ultrasuede...

    This thing is a blast to play with....will show more pix later of what I have done today!
