Coffee Filters for Embroidery Machine Backing

If you have an embroidery machine, don't buy that expensive backing. When I bought mine, the man told me to just go to the dollar store, buy some cheap coffee filters, and press them out. They work great!

I have also heard of using used fabric softener sheets (not the foam ones). Press them flat to remove wrinkles before using.

Yes, and you can use non-woven fabric (i.e. bibs for child at some restaurants such as Mc Donald's, Flunch (the best..). They are bigger in size than coffee filters.

Try it!
