Over the Hoop 1

Over the Hoop 1

This technqique explains how to use a tear-away sticky stabilizer such as Film-o-Plast to stabilize odd-shaped or delicate items for embroidery.


Hoop adhesive stabilizer paper side up. Any additional stabilizer goes below it.


Using a pin, score the paper within the hoop in a shape and size adequate for your project.


Tear the scored area of paper away to reveal the sticky surface.


Carefully place the item to be embroidered within the hoop. Press securely against the sticky surface.


After the embroidery is finished, tear or cut away the excess stabilizer.


This method allows us to finish the project without hoop burn or wrinkles on a sensitive fabric.
