    Can/Should I Embrorider on baby onsies? Would it be too rough for the baby's skin?

    I can handle the bibs -- but they don't lay right on the baby, there's usually a layer of clothes to buffer...

    I've been arguing with myself about this for a month, finally decided to ask the experts!

    =)

    That's a good question!! I wonder if you used a very soft or water soluable stabilier if that would be OK.

    Sorry, not a better answer!

    By the way, those are darling!!!!

    The bibs are darling! I don't know anything about embroidery machine stabilizers, but could you use flannel? That might not be as scratchy.

    Where did you get your plain bibs from? I am looking for some for our upcoming great granddaughter. Yours came out so cute.

    They do sell a woven interfacing that kind of looks like cheese cloth. I don't know it is called. I bought it at a quilt store.

    When you do filled designs, not only are they scratchy on the skin, they also pull on the fabric when is washed. The ones with letters are probably a better choice. The stabilizer is usually pulled away so it doesn't matter which one you use, unless you use a cut away one. The best I have used for this purpose is called Steady Stuff by Ricky Tims. It comes as 8.5 x 11 inches or on a roll. You can cut it away or leave some of it around. When wet it becomes like a real soft poly and doesn't hurt when it rub against the skin. You can get it at www.thequiltshow.com.

    There is a stabilizer that is used under knitted garments like a sweater. I used it when embroidering T shirts. It is soft and has a smooth texture. It is called Soft'n Sheer Cut-away by sulky. You can also find stuff like that on the Sew Beautiful site.

    I bought a fusible cover for just that thing, after you're all done with the embroidery you iron this over it on the back side, it's super soft.

    There is a product called Cloud Cover that you iron to the back after you embroider. I order it from Thread Art.
