Those are beautiful! Don't worry about the stains - newborn babies are usually breastfed and that milk washes off wonderfully. Later when it comes to carrots it's another story Grin. But she'll outgrow this by that time I guess Wink

Your shirts are bee-yoo-ti-ful!

I have been hesitant to try embroidery on knits, so may I ask a question (or two)?

Do you use a tear-away backing, or wash-away backing?  If so, can you recommend a brand?

Do you iron the transfer on the shirt, then stick the backing and fabric in an embroidery hoop to work on?

Thanks, in advance, for any insight you can give.  She's a lucky little princess-to-be  Smiley

Not at all. Here's my process:

1. Iron on the transfer to the front of the shirt

2. Turn the shirt inside out. Iron on a layer of tear-away stabilizer (I use Sulky Bran Totally Stable Iron-On, Tear-Awary Stablizer).

3. Then, iron on a second layer of tear-away stabilizer over the first (I've found one layer is not enough, three is too many)

4. Turn the shirt back out and pop it into an embroidery hoop.

5. When you're done stitching you can easily tear away the layers of stabilizer. If there's a couple of small nooks and crannies you're having problems with, a pair of tweezers will do the trick.

6. Wash your item and you're done.

In the beginning, I tried the kind of stabilizer that you just cut around the edges of when you're done, but didn't like it very much. I've never tried the stablizier thatn dissolves with washing, but have only heard horror stories. I like the tear-away a lot, so that's what I'm sticking with.

Hope this helps.
