Unhappy Applique help!

Hello! I'm new to applique, I have a Brother Pe770. I have been using the Sulky Tear-Easy stabilizer and Sulky temporary spray adhesive on my shirts/fabric.

I've done this applique about 3 times now, thinking it was my error, I made sure i was hooping right and spraying enough adhesive, but I'm still having problems.

The shirt is a Gildan, preshrunk 100% cotton XS shirt (from Hobby Lobby). The fabric is cotton from Hobby Lobby also. My applique is bunching, pinching, tugging, wrinkling, gathering, whatever you want to call it (haha) I'm not sure if it's the tension of the threading (which I have no clue how to adjust). Or if it's something else, or my error.

Here is a photo of my shirt, with my "E" applique, it's going to be for my niece Emma

I use cut away stabilizer on knit shirts. Hoop the stabilizer, spray with adhesive and stick the shirt to it then baste or pin in place. Make sure your stabilizer is tight but don't stretch the shirt and use plenty of spray

You could also try putting an extra tear away stabilizer inbetween the top of the shirt and the applique. I have recently tried using saran wrap instead of the tear away (for the top of shirt) and it worked great for me. I personally have never used the spray to adhesive with my tear away (on the inside of shirt), but I only use a 4x4 hoop and I do not know if that makes a difference.
Good luck and keep trying!

to be perfectly honest, i've seen worse! your's looks pretty darn good!

sometimes a hot iron will make those puckers go away . . .

teeshirts are a bit tricky . . . and you could go w/ this motto . . .

if you want it perfect, have it made by a machine. she'll love it 'cause it's from you!

also, if you can lower the density of the stitches . . . that sometimes helps . . . and that'd be my guess for the puckering - not you!
