I bought two of the Sublime Stitching bibs, but now I'm not sure how to stitch on them.  I know how to transfer the pattern, and they are big enough that I can use a hoop. 

But how should I actually stitch on them?  Should I stitch all the way throught them so that my knots and threads are visible on the plastic back?  When I ordered them, I had thought that maybe they were 2 layers, and that I could hide my knots and threads in between them -- but that is not the case.

Have you used these bibs?  How did you handle the back?

(Don't get me wrong -- I'm impressed by how nice the bibs are -- that's not the problem.  I'm just not sure how to tackle them.)

I wouldn't worry about the back. Just stitch away.  The backs of my stuff are so messy, I TRY to keep them neat and it just never works out!  I don't think it will matter if the knots are visable on the back.  Look at it this way.... it is one way to tell for sure the embroidery is hand done.  Wink

But that's just me.....

be super careful when ironing.  I melted the back cause I was using an iron that was too hot.

Thanks so much for the encouragement -- and the warning about ironing the bibs.  I'll be careful!
