Question about embroidering on a fleece scarf
I have heard many different things, and now I am so very confused!

I have a friend that brought me over 20 fleece scarves. They want me to embroider a design on one end and a name on the other end.
What kind of stabilizer would you use? I was thinking cut a way, but not sure. When you embroider on a fleece scarf, I guess the back side is just the white bobbin thread and stabilizer showing? Does anyone have a picture of what a design on fleece should look like? I haven't been embroidering very long...in fact I do mostly in the hoop stuff. I am really scared about trimming the threads on the back side of design. How close do you all trim your designs? I am just terrified that I am going to give the finished scarves back to my friend and they will unravel.
If someone has a pic of the backside of a design on fleece, that I could see, I think I would feel more confident. Cause as you know...in the hoop you don't really have to worry to much.

Are you in luck and timely! The recent Sewing With Nancy program was on embroidery and part of the show talked about embroidering on terry cloth and it applies to fleece. You want to use water-soluble stablizer on top so that the design would stand out. Here is the link to the program:

Every machine embroidered should have Embroidery Library on their Favorite Links.

OK, I am watching those videos, but I'm not seeing anywhere where they are telling you what to trim on the back side. That is the main thing that confuses me about embroidering on a machine. Am I supposed to cut all the threads and make it smooth on the backside?

Check out the tutorials at emblibrary.com. They go into all the details as to what type of stabilizer and all the techniques. There is a wealth of knowledge there! It was a great help to me when I first started emboidering. There are also boards at the Ann The Gran website, also very helpful.
I really like the ATG water soluable stabilizer for a topping for fleece. It is much nicer than what I was getting at my local store. You could probably use an "easy tear" tear away on the bottom if the design is not too dense, the type of stabilizer depends both on the design as well as the type of fabric. You can use a colored thread on your bobbin, but be sure a do a test sew, as you may have to adjust the tension. If you are doing a multi-color design you may want to match it to the fabric. (Regular bobbin thread is usually a lighter weight, and that is what your machine came set for)
But do go to emblibrary. Their tutorials are also nicely illustrated with photos.

Thank you for the link to teh video PattiAnnJ. I am still confused...the video doesn't answer the other questions...

when you finish your embroidery, on any kind of fabric, how do you finish your design? Do you trim the thread on the backside? How close? Do you trim before tearing or cutting off your stabilizer?
It would help, if someone could post a picture of any embroidery back side so I can see what it looks like coming directly off the machine, then a picture of the backside after it is trimmed and finished, but I know that is asking a lot of people. I know how much of a pain it is to post a photo, cause I still have troubles trying to do that too!

I really feel so stupid! But I really usually only do in the hoop projects and it doesn't matter if I cut the back sides because they are always out of site.
