i've seen some beautiful work done on craftster on baby onsies.

i'm wondering how do you do it. i embroider, but i've never done a baby shirt. how do you make sure that it's neat on the back?

might be a silly question, but i haven't embroidered in FOREVER.

thanks in advance

I don't embroider, but this looks pretty simple:

There's a quick explanation at the bottom of the post, especially helpful if you know what the different stitches are.

I've been embroidering for my baby boy and have found sticking to the ever-so-simple split stitch is best.  The shirts I'm using are made out of a jersey material which makes other stitches harder to control (I'm not a spectacular embroiderer but even my raised satin stitch came out pretty wonky).
I'm not using onsies though, I'm using these nifty little shirts made by Gerber that open up completely in the front and have snaps.  I stretch them in my little 4inch embroidery hoop.
So, I guess I keep mine neat by keeping it super simple  Roll Eyes

I really like the one that I liked to above.  Can you explain to me what the different stitches are?  It says "running stitch" and "split stitch".

Thanks!
