Getting started with the free machine embroidery patterns

It’s important to always choose the right hoop when machine embroidering. There are a wide variety of shapes and sizes available.Larger hoops such as the one used in this project are better for bigger designs.

Before you begin, it’s essential that you appropriately stabilise your fabric, to support and strengthen it during the stitching process. There are three main types of stabiliser used in machine embroidery:

Cut-away, which is usually used on stretchy fabrics and will remain in place indefinitely; any excess is cut away.

Tear-away, which is usually used on woven fabrics such as cotton and will be torn away after the design is worked.

Wash-away, which is used when all traces of it need to be removed from the project, such as when using a sheer fabric, or when thicker fabrics with a deep pile will need extra support from the front of the work as well as the back while you are working.

It’s best to practise a new design on a scrap of fabric before committing it to your final project to be sure that the thread colours you’ve chosen will work well and that the design is the correct size.
