Default has anyone tried embroidering on foe

i saw a cute foe hb with an embroidered monogram on it and wondered if there are any tricks to working with this elastic? i have tried to embroider on nylon headbands before and end up with a mess! cant imagine this is much different. i am going to give it a shot but wondered if anyone else had tried and had any tips for a stabilizer, etc? thanks!

that's an interesting concept

for some stuff, especially sliders, i back the foe w/grosgrain ribbon to give it added bulk . . . i wonder if doing that after embroidering (and sewing it on the ends so it will not stretch) would work.

some of the foe i've gotten is so flimsy and thin/different quality . . . i wonder if that would be better? hmmmmmm . . . i'll add it to my "to do" list.

i'm a big fan of freezer paper as a stabilizer = cheap & it works great!

i tried a strip and it wasnt as big of a mess as i thought it would be. just used a lightweight stabilizer and "cant rememember what its called plastic stuff" on the top. i think the sticky stabilizer might be better just because it wants to move around while being stitched. freezer paper is a great idea - never heard of that one! would love to hear what other people come up with. i think these could be huge sellers but they also wouldnt sell for a whole lot of $$ so the most efficient way to do them is the only way i will give it a real go. i have made and sold enough things that i end up hating because they are a pain in the a#& and i make very little on them. over that!
