Embroidering on pillow slip

I am embroidering a monogram on a pillowslip which makes it difficult to use an embroidery ring. Any suggestions please.

Undo the seams
by: Carol

Louise, I would gently unpick enough of the seam to allow me to put a hoop on the work easily. After doing the embroidery you can then sew it up again by hand or on the sewing machine.

Another option would be to use a stabilizer in the embroidered area. This may avoid the need for a hoop entirely. You can get stabilizers that you can print your pattern onto and after you finish the project you dampen the stitching and the paper stabilizer dissolves away.

I hope this helps, but I am sure others will have suggestions too.

P.S. When you add a comment you have to enter a capcha word, mine was "inseam" which was rather appropriate, LOL.
