Embroidering on Puffy Winter Jacket
What is the trick to getting machine embroidery to stitch out correctly on a puffy winter jacket? My design stitches out great on plain heavy cotton but is distorted on the jacket.
Ideally, the embroidery would be done on the top layer of fabric before it's sewn together, but it's too late for that.
Are you using heavy stabilizer? That is a must with heavy fabrics. It will keep the pattern from pulling out of place and distorting.
Are the layers sliding or are they thick with uneven lumps? You might try quilting the layers together more first with some clear thread. Use wash away thread if you don't want it to stay there.
Good luck, and please let us know how it turns out!
