I embroider 2 butterflys for my first pillow I have made. I used a white felt but the butterflys are too limply. What can I use to make them stiffer?. By the way, the pillow came out great.

What kind of stabilizer did you use?

If they are too limp, then I guess the felt isn't heavy enough on it's own. Try embroidering the butterflies with some interfacing on the back. Maybe that will work better.

I would use a medium cut-away stabilizer on the back, and a solvy on top so your stitches don't get lost in the felt.
