I know that when you embroider on knit you need to stabilize it, but do you need to do the same if you applique on it??  I want to embelish a few little knit t shirts for a friend's baby and I want to make sure they can withstand washing.

I would put stabilizer or interfacing (iron on or an adhesive I think) under the knit.  I always use web on the applique.  Since interfacing stretches, if you happen to have stabilizer it would probably be a little better.  (Interfacing is meant to give body where stabilzer does what its name indicates.)  The stabilizer would do more to keep the knit from stretching under the knit.

Cool, that is what I thought but I wanted to double check with others who knew more than me!   Wink
