Coffee Filters for Embroidery Machine Backing: -- If you have an embroidery machine, don't buy that expensive backing. When I bought mine, the man told me to just go to the dollar store, buy some cheap coffee filters, and press them out. They work great! You can use non-woven fabric (i.e. the free bibs for children at some restaurants such as Mc Donald's, etc. They are bigger in size than coffee filters.
