The best tools for embroidering non-woven reusable bags

Do you enjoy embroidering reusable bags and want to know the best tools for the job? Well, you’re in the right place!


If you’ve never embroidered a reusable bag or want to know how to, check out this article!


For this reusable bag, I'm using think spring from my Etsy shop

The best tools: 

  • Needles

Before you embroider a reusable bag, change your needle. Embroidery needles should be changed after about every 8-10 hours of stitching. 


I suggest using the brand Schmetz and use a 75/11 machine embroidery needle for the best results


  • Stabilizer 


Use a medium-weight cutaway stabilizer, and make sure it is tight in the hoop.


I suggest using the brand New Brothread


  • Pins


For best results, I suggest using pins to hold the stabilizer in place before you hoop, that way you can not only ensure that the stabilizer is in the hoop but also make sure you have the correct placement


  • Thread


For the upper thread make sure you’re using 40wt and ensure that the machine is threaded correctly. 


It’s also very crucial that you use a thread stand.


For the bobbin thread, you’re going to want to use either 60wt or 90wt depending on your machine. Make sure that the bobbin is not upside down and that it’s threaded correctly.


I highly recommend using spool savers! Embroidery thread unravels really easily and the spool savers keep them from unravelling!



Embroidering non-woven reusable bags really isn’t too difficult! And I know you can do it!


You don’t need anything special, just basic embroidery supplies!
