What are you most proud of? This was a dense design with over 38,000 stitches. I always pray embroidery is completed without any major problems or else the clothing gets ruined. What advice would you give someone starting this project? I used a water-activated adhesive tearaway stabilizer and hooped it. I used cutaway stabilizer with spray adhesive and attached it to the back of the denim jacket. Then I place it on top of the hooped stabilizer. The denim is too thick to hoop the traditional way.
