3D embroidery looks amazing when it is perfect. By using tricks you can make your embroidery extraordinary.
For your 3D embroidery take a ballpoint needle. It makes larger holes than sharps. So it will be easy to perforate the foam and during sewing, it will ensure that the foam gets cut. Once the design is complete this also makes it easier to tear away excess foam.
From looping under the design, make your top tension tighter to prevent bobbin thread.
Slow working may produce the best. Many practices can make your experience. Experience will tell you the best speed of your machine
When you are doing with the flat design creates a stop. Learn how to program stops in your machine. It is important in your career for 3D puff embroidery.
Creating an outline is very helpful before embroidering. There is an increased instability to the set-up, due to the foam. The foam sticks to the fabric. By providing the ‘cut’ in foam, stitching an outline counteracts this innate instability.
Choose thinner foam. It may be easier to work with. With thinnest size puffy foam you can produce the effect you want.
The base layers should have less density than the top layers of designs intended for a puff. To manage stitch density, most embroidery machines can adjust. A thick layer of satin stitches adds to the loft on top.
Remove the excess foam after finishing the design. To remove little pieces of puff are too rigid with hands, so apply a heat source. You can use a heat gun to remove the foam. If some puff bits remain stuck, you can weed them out through tweezers.
When you are making a 3D embroidery on a letter run, try swing out in this letter run. Research with different variants, you can choose the best one for the fabric.
This can also help the inexperienced embroiders as their practicing field. It makes them harness best conditions for the actual sew-out and for similar future jobs.
You should make stitch density of 3D puff embroidery higher than normal flat designs. Satin stitches come on for the flat design. You should make underneath stitches with normal stitch density.
You can use puffy foam on a wide variety of fabrics. Puffy foam works best with flatter fabrics, like hat material.
You should not use puff embroidery on the delicate fabrics. Puffy foam embroidery needs more density, so it needs a more delicate fabric.
