Embroidering on sweatshirts made easy
When embroidering on sweatshirts the following criteria should be met:
– designs should be positioned correctly (taking into account both its proportion and placement according to other details of the garment, such as necklines, yokes, sleeves etc);
– embroidered design should have no defects (no puckering, loose or missed stitches etc);
– embroidered design should not be cumbersome, bulky or cause any other disproportion or inconvenience in wear (e.g.: too dense and too large designs will not look good on sleeves);
– embroidered design should keep its form withstanding the tall of time and numerous washes (using wrong stabilizer or bad choice of a place will shorten the lifespan of your project)
Now what should you do in order to met all the listed above criteria? Well, there’re certain rules of embroidering on sweatshirts that you need to follow. We’ve rounded them up in a form of a plan with instructions on each of its steps. It is highly advisable to read the list through before any of your projects. Let’s start with the beginning:
1. Placement of the design
– Think of a place to position the pattern. Designs of larger sizes will look better if you position them closer to the center of the garment piece. Designs of smaller sizes will generally look better if you position them closer to the upper side of the sweatshirt. When you work with children’s wear, adjust the small designs’ position a bit closer to the neckline.
Another thing that should be taken into account at the step is the quality of the design itself. Solid patterns (with blocks of solid fill stitching, no filigree etc.) tend to change draping quality of the fabric. If your sweatshirt is made of light, stretchy fabric this point is of double importance. Such designs will look better in use (when the garment will be worn) if you position them in the center of fronts, backs or on yokes. NOT ADVISABLE for embroidering on sleeves, at least in areas where natural folding occurs (e.g. elbows).
–Print out a template and mark the center point and vertical and horizontal axis points. To find the perfect placement, you can print out a template (an image) of the design that you’re going to embroider. Tip: easiest way to print out a template is with the help of Wilcome’s TrueSizer.
Don’t remove the template completely, when marking the points, for better precision in making the marks. These marks will help you later, when you’ll be hooping the area for the embroidery. Tip: For marking use temporary textile markers. They come in various colors (good for embroidering on light textiles). Make sure to read their description, printed on the package for some of them disappear on their own (Hemline offers such markers) while others require washing (like the ones offered by Hobby&Pro and Prym). If your marker requires washing, DO NOT IRON THE FABRIC while it is still on.
– When hooping the area, make sure to align the points, you marked on the fabric, with the ones of the inner hoop.
2. Stabilizers, needles and threads, needed for embroidering on sweatshirts
– Choosing the right stabilizer for stretchy cotton blends, which most sweatshirts are made of, depends on many factors: density of the design, quality of the material etc. Usually a cutaway backing, enhanced with temporary spray adhesives, is a good go-to variant of stabilization. (Don’t worry if it might feel a bit too “sturdy” for your convenience, for it softens with washes). We suggest cut-aways, because tear-away stabilizers will not provide the necessary for the type of fabric support. If the texture of the fabric is more delicate (yarns knitted loosely), than a topping of a water-soluble stabilizer can be added.
– The fabric should be hooped together with the backing, whenever it’s possible. Always make sure the excess fabric of the sweatshirt doesn’t come onto the embroidering area. Tip: NEVER USE YOUR HANDS OR FINGERS when keeping the fabric away from the area where the needle stitches. There’re special clips for this purpose (like Wander clips for quilting). If you don’t have them on hand, clam clips for hair or office binder clips will do just fine.
– Right threads are important for sweatshirts embroidering. Royal Present Embroidery always tries designs out with Madeira threads. Depending on type of fabric we calibrate sizes our threads (and needles obviously). Classic rayon # 40 is the good choice for the duo: set of machine embroidery designs daisies on jersey sweatshirts. Reasons: the tread has a softer feel which will work great with solid filling of the daisies (poly might make it too tough). Tip: If your choice of thread is not Madeira (but Gütermann, GUNOLD, etc), we suggest using tables of interchange between threads of various manufacturers. Such tables are widely available on the Internet. Info, provided in such tables will help you not only with the right choice of the quality of the threads, but with their colors too.
Tip: If your machine embroidery design has several color changes (like in set of machine embroidery designs daisies you’ll have 7 of them) it helps if you know which color you use in each. One of the easiest (and cheapest) ways of setting the order and sticking to it is placing your thread cones in an ordinary egg carton. Enumerate each dimple and place the thread cones according to the list, given in the digital description of your design. This simple arrangement will help you make machine embroidery process easier.
– Choosing embroidery needles for embroidering on sweatshirts depends on the density of the fabric. Some cotton blends, used in making sweatshirts, are denser and need ballpoint needles (SES) as thick as size 90/14. Lighter ones can be embroidered with SES needles, sizes of which may range from 70/10 – 80/12.
– After you’ve completed embroidering on sweatshirts, unhoop the fabric as usual. Usually cotton blends used for sweatshirts withstand the hoop pressure very well, so don’t worry about the marks. The only thing to consider here is the amount of the excess backing that should be removed. Always make sure to leave 1/2″ around the outline of the pattern.
