Project Advisor - Fabric Selection

In the Project Advisor, what type fabric would you recommend choosing for burlap, as it is not a listed fabric type? Thank you.

Here is a link to Embroidery Library talking about embroidering on Burlap which may help you.

Or you can find it here at this link.

To me Burlap is more like Linen but is a much more open in weave and is far less stable and can present some problems when embroidering on it.
It all depends on how tight a weave your Burlap is.

Note Embroidery Library suggests using a cut away stabilizer but also mentions that depending on the how open the weave is of the burlap you may see through the weave and see the stabilzer when left behind in the embroidery.
They suggest to not trim the stabilizer or to back the whole area with a light colored fabric so you don`t notice the left in stabilizer
