The best tools: 

  • Needles

Embroidery needles should be changed after about every 8-10 hours of stitching.

I suggest using the brand Schmetz and using 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. Using a thread stand will help too.

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- when not using the thread.

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!

Guide To The Three Main Machine Embroidery Stabilizers

 This article is brought to you by  Lizzsews . Here is everything that you need to know about the three main machine embroidery stabilizers. Stabilizers are important in machine embroidery; they prevent puckering and support the fabric.  The stabilizer goes underneath the fabric you are embroidering. Although there are some stabilizers that will go on top of certain types of fabric, this is called a topper.  A bottom stabilizer is always needed, you can never embroider without stabilizer, but a stabilizer topper is only needed for certain blanks. The three main types of stabilizers are cutaway, tearaway, and wash away.  The first is a cutaway stabilizer. A cutaway stabilizer can be used on clothes and many different types of fabric. The cutaway stabilizer is permanent and is mainly designed for knit fabric. It is non-woven and helps get rid of pulled or sagging stitches.  The cutaway stabilizer has a lot of stretch resistance and stays intact after wearing, using, and launderin
