What kind of paper do you use for embroidery?
When selecting paper, choose a heavy-weight cardstock, handmade paper, or watercolor paper. When using paper with shorter fibers (such as cardstock) the needle perforations will be more visible around the embroidery, but it will still work well.
What material is used for embroidery backing?
Tearaway backing is best for woven fabric, including denim, chambray, twill, nylon oxford and canvas. Use it for dress shirts, bags, aprons, flags, sheets, pillowcases, tablecloths, napkins, towels and washcloths.
