Ending embroidery stitches on a line
During one of these sliding moves, don’t pull the thread fully, instead leave a little loop so that you can bring your needle through it. Pull the thread gently to form a neat knot. Now slide the needle under a couple more stitches to secure it better and snip the thread.
What backing do I use 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.
What do I put on the back of embroidery?
Under the embroidery, you’ll find a piece of white material (or black). That’s backing. Backing is a sheet of material that is hooped and embroidered along with the fabric you’re embroidering. This material acts as a stabilizer, supporting the fabric and stitches during the embroidery process.
