I like to use polymesh cut-away on all my denim. I hoop the polymesh, spray it with temporary adhesive and press the garment onto the hooped stabilizer. I add pins for added security. After sliding the hoop onto the machine, I slip a piece of tear-away under the design area. I’ve used this combination on regular denim and stretch denim for satisfying results.
Use a large embroidery needle , 90/14, for most denim projects. Since you’ll be using embroidery thread, you’ll need an eye that can accommodate the thread.
