Hi all-

I really love Martha Stewart's keepsake stocking idea. Where you have a blank stocking and then create a new felt character every year-something that your child likes.  Anyway, I want to embroider my little ones name on the top of it it.  Besides just plain white cotton, what other fabric would be good for embroidering?  I  was thinking of a white fleece, is that really difficult to embroider on?  Or white corduroy?

Thanks for any help.  Smiley

I think you could embroider on either of those as long as you used a stabilizer on the top.  (Tear-away or water soluble)  Though depending on how stiff the corduroy is that might be difficult.  Fleece would be pretty and soft.  Good Luck!
