embroidering fleece blanket

Posted by alliejem (My Page) on

Hi there, I am just started embroidering baby goods. I did a lovely pattern on a fleece blanket but it looks untidy and feels rough on the reverse side.

What is the answer to embroidering on fleece blankets? I want to use pre bought blankets so another layer of fleece on the back is not a solution. Do I have to keep changing the bobbin threads to match the top?

Advice anyone? The top bit looks fine (using water soluble topper and tear away stabilizer underneath).

RE: embroidering fleece blanket

You have to clean up the back really well. You also can't use a real dense design on them.

If you don't want to keep changing the bobbin thread, you could use a thread or bobbin fil to match the throw background fabric.

I have done dense designs without a problem. I also recommend tear away stabilizer.
