Embroidering on Waffle Weave Dish Towels

My dd is moving into a new apartment today.  She will need some new things to make it feel like "home" so I quickly embroidered these store-bought microfiber towels.  In case you are new to machine embroidery, you might wonder what type of stabilizer should be used for this type of towel?
There are different combinations that will work just fine, but I have had pretty good success with a heavy cutaway on the bottom and an aquafilm on top.  The towels pictured above were washed and dryed and you can see that there are no pokies. :-)
Thank you for visiting today!
