How do you machine embroider knit fabric?

How do you stabilize knit fabric for machine embroidery?

To prevent knit fabric from puckering and distorting during embroidery, use a soft cut-away stabilizer that doesn’t stretch in any direction. Knits stretch easily so, baste the fabric to the stabilizer before putting in the hoop. I basted around the perimeter of the stabilizer before putting it in the hoop.

Can I embroider on jersey fabric?

Jersey knit is really stretchy, and does have the tendency to shift around during embroidery. Having the cutaway stabilizer adhered to the fabric makes a tight bond, so that all the stitches land in one place. You can also use an adhesive-backed or fusible cutaway in lieu of the spray.

Can you machine embroider on a crochet blanket?

Embroidering on crocheted fabric creates additional dimension and expression. You can transfer almost any embroidery design onto crocheted fabric. Crewel (embroidery worked with yarn instead of thread) and cross-stitch work especially well on crocheting.
