That is fantastic!  I love that song, but I love your embroidery more.

I think I even have that same shirt from Old Navy, but in green.

Wednesday have you ever tried it without any stabilizer?  I embroider onesies often and I don't use any stabilizer, and it works for me fine.  I think everyone has their own tricks and things that work for them, sometimes you just have to try a few to get the hang of it.

I suppose everyone does this a little differently, but I think the answer also depends on what the final product will be used as.  For example, if I am embroidering the outside of a bag that has lining, I don't mind the back of the work being a bit more messy since it will get covered up.  But if I am stitching a onesie or a tea towel, I try to be mindful and not stretch the floss too far since it will show on the other side. Also if you are stitching with dark colors on light fabrics, you may want to trim between objects in your design so you don't have tell tale lines.

I try to plan my stitching so that I waste as little thread as possible.  Another tip is if you don't want to trim your floss you can stitch some of it through the back side of other stitches, that way you can travel without having the unsightly lines...

I think Jenny posted the back of some of here embroidery somewhere, try searching for it in this forum.

Good luck!
