Have you tried commerical stablizers for that use? Some tear wayeasilt,
others dissolve when wet. Check out your local fabric store or needleart
store. Good luck

Subject: HNW - Getting the pattern right


In some of my embroidery projects, I'm going for complex patterns
(like Celtic knots) or even simple patterns that should be even all
the way around.  I don't "eyeball" things very well.  Usually, I draw
the little monsters out (or photocopy from another source) and pin
them to the material, then sew through the paper, then rip the paper
out.  This has variable results.  Sometimes (especially if I wet the
paper first) this works OK.  Other times I just end up pulling the
stitching through or otherwise making a  mess of things.  Either way,
I'm never completely amused by the result.

What creative ways do the rest of you use to embroider patterns onto
a chunk of material?
