Is there any other fabric you like to use besides Aida? I'm super lost with what to use and thin cotton really sucks lol
thin cotton suuuuuucks for detailed embroidery
so I know I KNOW that other embroidery fabrics exist, I’m just very happy using aida because it works for me and what i want to do. though I can’t name a specific fabric/brand (i guar-run-teeeee my followers can – lmk guys), you are going to want a fabric that has little-to-no stretch (that’s why cotton and cotton jersey are out**) and a high thread count. Look for a fabric that doesn’t budge from the tension in your stitches, rather than a fabric that stretches to accommodate them.
**and if you’re thinking, “but rebecca! i want to stitch on a t-shirt!” then i’d respond: use some felt backing
