This is so sweet. Did you use some sort of stabilizer on the knit? The little bit of embroidery I've done on a onesie turned out ok I think, but it was shifting and pulling even though I used an iron on stabilizer on the back.
I didn't actually. I just put it in a hoop as tight as I could get it. I was hesitant to use stabilizer as I wasn't sure if it would irritate a babies skin. Having been a parent now for a while I think it would've been fine and probably easier had I used stabilizer. Also I made sure to use an extra sharp needle for the embroidery. I have to be careful not to poke myself but I feel like it helps with the precision on knit fabrics.
Good tips, thanks! If I recall correctly I was using a more blunt needle thinking it would prevent damage to the knit (like a ball point needle on the machine).
