Knit beanies or toboggans

Posted by aubratgyrl (My Page) on

I have a brother PE 780D. I want to embroider some beanies or toboggans. I used a size 11 needle, used sticky backing and stuck the hat to it, but when I started the machine the stitches just disappeared. It looks as though they are going straight through the hat. What am I doing wrong? Can the hat be hooped or is that a no no?
What type of stabilizer, needle etc should I be using?
Thanks so much
