Default Monogrammed Ribbon Keyfob

I've been embroidering my ribbon before I sew it onto the webbing. Would it be okay to sew the ribbon onto the webbing first and then embroider it? I've been getting puckers in my ribbon. Today, I bought a size 9 needle to see if that will help. I've stabilized my ribbon the way I'm supposed to, checked my tension and I still have puckers. I use a font that isn't stitch heavy and I use my Embird software to edit the size and stitch density if think it's a heavy stich design. Any advice would be really great. Thanks!

I use Tearaway. After the stitching done, i just cut (instead tearing the stabilizer) as close as I can to the name. Minimal to non, puckering. And then, I sew the ribbon unto the webbing.

I love your stuff! Your ribbon on your key fob looks perfect. I use a tearaway stabilizer and I spray it with Sulky's temporary adhesive. I'll give my new needle a try and see if that helps.

thank you ... I don't use Spray either... =)... I just make sure the stabilizer is hooped tight enough, and tape my ribbon unto the stabilizer. Only tape both ends down. I forgot the name of the tape (it's a double-sided tape) but I bought it at Hancocks and it's super strong holding the ribbon down without interruptions i.e moving and such.

ETA: I use Schmet Needle #75/11 =) (it's the only needle, brand and number, that i use when i embroider ribbons.
