Okay, so I have been on an embroidery kick latley. I have done a lot of tea towels, and pillowcases, but I wanted to do a few onsies for my cousins baby shower.

So I put the stablizer on the back, ironed on my pattern and the eye of the needle is getting stuck in the fabric. I have to pull hard to get the needle through. Is that because it is stretchy material? I am using "embroidery needles" what should I be using? Just wondering if I was doing something wrong.  Huh

You probably need a smaller embroidery needle use less strands of floss.  You can check out rectangel's needle post here. http://flickrembroidery.blogspot.com/2007/08/needle-in-haystack.html
