I make rabbit lovies and embroider them to personalize. I had really wanted to get a Magna Hoop to do those and embroider towels, but that is out of my budget for a while. I did figure out a way that produced good results. I made sure my design was at least an inch smaller all the way around than the hoop. I traced the inside of the hoop on my cut away backing. (I use tear-away on top so embroidery stays on top of fabric rather than embedding the stitches in the fleece.) I place the hoop marking face up on wrong side of fleece. I put a piece of the tear-away on the top of fabric, then I sewed a basting stitch in contrasting color about 1" inside the hoop marking through all layers. I then hooped just the cut away backing in the hoop. The basting keeps things from shifting around. After embroidering, I removed basting stitches. I was very happy with the results. A lot less headache than trying to hoop heavy fabric and two layers of stabilizer.
