1.Materials You Will Need:

  • Snips and scissors.
  • Two layers of clear topping to ensure the thread doesn't sink into the mat.
  • Tape to hold down the clear topping.
  • Two layers of tearaway stabilizer for the back of the mat.
  • 80 by 12 size sharp needles suitable for the mat's thickness.
  • MaggieFrame  8inch x 13inch - a magnetic hoop ideal for thick materials.
  • Ricoma embroidery machine with an optional table to support the mat.

2.The Process:

  • Begin by placing the bottom piece of the MaggieFrame.
  • Lay the two tearaway stabilizers on top of bottom frame.
  • Secure the top piece of the MaggieFrame, ensuring a tight grip.
  • Place the two sheets of clear topping on the mat's surface, using tape to keep them in place.
  • Hoop the mat and load it into the machine.
  • Choose your design and adjust the settings as needed. For our demonstration, I've flipped the design by 180 degrees and set the speed to a thousand stitches per minute.
  • Start the embroidery process and watch the magic happen!

3.Digitizing Tips:

  • Ensure a high density to prevent the foam from peeking through the threads.
  • Use digitizing software like Chroma Lux for best results.

4.Final Thoughts

Embroidering on yoga mats is a fantastic way to expand your product range and cater to a fitness-conscious audience. The end product, as you've seen, is neat, professional, and highly appealing.
