How to use EVA (puffy) Foam for 3D Embroidery

  1. Only use puffy foam with designs that have been digitized for 3D embroidery.
  2. Hoop the garment or cap as you would normally do.
  3. Always cut the foam slightly bigger than the area it will be covering.
  4. Elements that will be embroidered flat must always be stitched first, using a normal size needle.
  5. Once all flat embroidery is complete you can lay down the puffy foam.
  6. The foam must cover the area that needs to be embroidered fully.
  7. At this point, change to a thicker needle example size 12.
  8. Use white foam with light coloured thread and black foam with dark coloured thread.
  9. A light application of spray adhesive/double-sided tape can be used to temporarily fix the foam in place - SK 100 Spray adhesive is recommended.
  10. Begin embroidering your 3D design.
  11. Carefully tear off excess foam from finished embroidery.
  12. Neaten up rough edges with a low heat open flame or sharp embroidery scissors.
USE A SLOW SPEED FOR THE TACK-DOWN STITCHES TO SECURE THE FOAM TO THE FABRIC


DO NOT DOUBLE UP ON FOAM, USE ONLY ONE LAYER OF THE DESIRED FOAM THICKNESS
