When using either stabilizer, I like to cut the stabilizer about 1″ larger than my inside hoop. I peel off the paper from the entire piece. Then, I place the inside hoop on top of the “sticky” side of the stabilizer and wrap it around the edges of the hoop. This provides for a no slipping of the stabilizer in the hoop. Place the item to be embroidered on top of the sticky stabilizer.
