Stitching Circles, Dots and Round Objects

Stitching Circles, Dots and Round Objects [machine embroidery] - when the machine is stitching dots and circles, it's "pulling" your fabric inward toward the inside of the circle. Below are a few things that will help you get better results:

  • Have you ever noticed some circles or dots look more like ovals after you stitch them? If so, you probably just need to use a little more stabilizer.
  • Use a little extra stabilizer just in case, don't wait until you've ruined something - it's just not worth it.
  • Keep in mind that everything stitches best on fabric that is stable - make sure there's enough stabilizer so that your fabric isn't able to stretch, pull, shift or move during the stitching process.
I hope this helps!
