Can you embroider over a piece of paper?

What material Cannot embroider?

The fabrics least suited for embroidery are thin or flimsy fabrics like silk, rayon, or super fine t-shirts. Holes from the sewing needle are likely to show on these very fine fabrics. Backing can be visibly noticeable on these garments, especially if they are white or light in color.

Can you embroider on sheets?

Embroidered appliqués are a wonderful way to add the look of embroidery to your bedding without doing the time consuming part yourself. You can purchase appliqués at your local fabric and craft shops and they can be either sewn on or even easier, they can be ironed on!

What kind of paper can I embroider on?

Any heavy weight paper (cardstock) will be fine. I’ve embroidered on several different kinds: paper from an artist’s water-color pad, short-fibered tagboard, and expensive hand-made paper. I’ve found the best results with heavy paper that has longer fibers.

What can I use instead of stabilizer?

Cotton, sweatshirt materials, fleece, flannel are all good alternatives to fabric stabilizers.

What is backing for embroidery?

Basic cutaway backing is the most commonly used. It’s a wet-laid nonwoven backing, designed specifically for machine embroidery. Though available in several weights, I use the 2-oz. for most applications.
