A baby knit onesie is a classic favorite for new parents. They’re cute, easy to wear and come in fun colors to match your little one’s style. Plus, they can be personalized with a name or special saying.

Embroidering on Onesie

Estella – onesies organic  makes the perfect blank canvas for embroidery! They are often made of cotton blend fabric that is a good choice for machine embroidery. The soft fabric is also very breathable and helps keep your baby cool in the summer and warm in the winter.

How to Embroider on a Onesie

First, you need to make sure you hoop your design correctly. To do this, fuse a piece of fusible poly mesh stabilizer on the inside of your onesie, centered on the center point you drew with a disappearing ink pen. After you fuse it down, float the onesie on a sticky back tear away stabilizer.

The Benefits of Dressing Your Baby in a Knit Onesie: Warmth, Comfort, and Style

Using Blue Painter Tape, hold the excess fabric out of the way while you stitch the design onto your onesie. Once you’ve finished all of the areas that need to be stitched, snip your connector strings and remove the tape and water soluble stabilizer from your onesie.

Lastly, you can always use the same technique with other baby items such as socks, booties, and hats. Just be sure to use enough painters tape to keep the excess fabric out of the way while you are stitching. Whether you are sewing on a onesie for your own baby or sewing it up as a gift, this simple process can be helpful to keep things in place while you’re embroidery on the fabric.
