I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

Acutally, I don't see why that wouldn't work. I would try it on a test sample and see if it works.

Did you try the heat n bond?  Did it work?  I normally do not use stabilizer for my onesies.  I just hoop it but not to tight and hope for the best.

I used the heat and bond and a square of fabric from an old tea towel.  It worked great!  I tried with no stabilizer first and the results were not so hot.  I did not have it stretched tightly on hoop, though.

When I was buying some Stitch and Tear yesterday, the lady in the shop told me when she was young, they used newspaper!

I always use the watersoluble kind.

Newspaper-didn't even think about that. I guess you could really use any kind of paper for that matter.

I imagine the thing with newspaper though would be to use a bit WITHOUT print, so it doesn't smear and smudge all over your canvas!

I was thinking about freezer paper, iron it on...I know they use it on the back of fabric when stenciling...i just wonder if it would be too hard to stitch through?

I've used freezer paper or tracing paper, they seem to work pretty well.  Though I've never used real stitch-n-tear, so it might just be that I'm missing out on a much easier way to do things...

I just picked up some onesies and t-shirts and I would like to embroider some cute, simple designs and sayings on the front for a gift for my cousin who's expecting.

My question is, what kind of stabilizer should I use?

I've never embroidered on t-shirt material before (actually I just finished embroidering my first tea towel, so this will be my 2nd project) but I know from my mom doing machine-embroidery that I should probably use a stabilizer.  I was just a little concerned that the tear-away type might leave rough spots that would irritate baby's skin?  Should I use the dissolving type?  Is there a specific type/brand you'd recommend for baby things?
