So I wanted to try embroidery after I saw all the wonderful projects here.  I haven't embroidered since I was 10.  I bought some Sublime Stitching patterns and t-shirt stabilizer (which I love) and made these for my pregnant friend.

One question - Does anyone cover the back of the embroidery?  Some of my store-bought clothes have felt (or something) on the back.  I don't like the back of the onesies.  I need to practice more to make it look nicer.

Thanks for looking.

I cover the mine with flannel and heat an bond lite.  It makes it look done. You can buy boht at Joanns...Heat and Bond lite is like wax paper and you iron it on the back of the flannel, cut it to shape and peel off the paper and iron on the flannel, like a patch.

The onesies look great!  Keep up the good work.  I love this pattern

The onsies look great.

I would cover the backs, not because you want it to look "finished" or anything, but because babies have horribly sensitive skin.  My son would actually break out in a rash anywhere machine embroidery touched his skin.  Let me emphaisize, hand embroidery is much softer than machine embroidery, but still...

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

Those are darling. Well I say your backs look a lot better than my first ones. It wasn't until I finished my first one that I read about how to make them neat. I should have taken a picture of it, you all would laugh at the mess. Let us know what you do to the back (if anythin)
