You asked: How do you remove backing from embroidery?

Can I remove embroidery stabilizer?

Tear Away:

If you have sprayed or fused the stabilizer to the fabric- gently peel away the backing from the blank parts of the fabric and continue to tear around your design. If you’ve stitched a dense design- then the stitches have probably perforated the stabilizer enough to where it comes away easily.

How do you remove paper after embroidery?

Remove Basting and Paper
