I'm fairly new to sewing and I have a Janome Memory Craft Machine...I want to take a child's Tshirt and embroider an initial onto it.  But I'm having trouble figuring out how to get the Tshirt hooped correctly...obviously the back of the tshirt can't be in the way of the needle or you wouldn't be able to put the shirt on.  But I can't seem to stretch it right to make this work.  Anyone have any helpful ideas!!

try opening the side seam.
it allows you to lay the shirt flat and get a more accurate placement.
When you are finished sew it back up.

Use a sticky stabilizer or pin your t-shirt front to tear-away stabilizer you have hooped in the hoop (you are not hooping the shirt).  Pin the excess material out of the way of the presser foot. 

I put registration marks on the material either with a wash away marker or, if the material will hold it, a finger pressed crease.  I use the marks to help place the item on the stabilizer that is already in the hoop (and to help center the needle).  Make sure if you are pinning the garment to the hooped stabilizer that the pins are out of the way.
