Default Digitising for fleece material.

I have digitised a large Stag of about 28cm wide, for the backs of polo shirts and normal shirts. The design has a tatami fill and a 2mm satin border in another colour around it. Sews out perfectly on the polos and shirts but when I stitch onto Fleece I have a problem. What happens is that the Tatami fill seems to squash the material out and expands the stitched area by about 2mm . When the border stitches it now stitches some 2mm onto the inside of the fill with the fill showing outside the border.
I am using strong cutaway backing and laying down a zigzag understitch.
Any ideas what to do to get the border to stitch in the right place or the fill not to expand outwards?
Earl.

Not an expert, but are you using any topping?

Happens with or without topping. Topping only stops it from sinking into the fleece, not "squashing " it outwards.
I will try eliminating the Pull Compensation to see if that changes anything.
Thanks Earl
