embroidering on terrycloth, or any
"lofty" fabric, I recommend a
topping to prevent the stitches from
sinking into the loft. The applique
fabric will do a good job keeping
the fabric fibers down, but I'm
still using a topping to keep the
satin stitch border looking crisp
A water-soluble stabilizer works
very well as a topping.
a piece of water soluble topping over the towel and hoop all
three layers together, aligning
the marks on the hoop with the lines
on the fabric.
Not all of the towel will be
hooped, and this is okay, as the adhesive
on the stabilizer will hold the
bottom edge of the towel in place.
