What do you recommend to put on the back of shirt embroidery to prevent it from being rough on the skin? Also, how do you apply it? Does it last through washing kids cloths? I went into our local JoAnns and they looked at me like I had two heads. LOL Thank you so much for any help or suggestions. Hugs, Barba

I use a light weight interface. I used to use the knit one but found it did not stay on as well as a regular woven interface.

Cuddle Spun or iron-on knit stabilizer, either works.

I use Pellon Sheer-Knit and I get it from JoAnns...and I usually wait until it is regular price and use a 50% off coupon...works wonderfully well and I have never had a problem with it coming off in the laundry...I round the corners and cut it a bit bigger than the design...some recommend that you use pinking sheers to cut it out as they say it adheres better with a pinked edge...If I am really worried about puckering, I will iron this on before I embroider and then another layer over the embroidery...

Thank you for all the info. I will definitely go into JoAnn's and ask for it. I will also watch my inbox for coupons. Hugs with a flower, Barba

I think it is called "Cloud Cover". You have to iron it onto the backside of your embroidery with medium heat. Good luck.

I use an iron on soft stabilizer. I don't know how long it lasts or even remember what it is called. I bought mine from a quilt/embroider shop about a year ago and they have closed. I cut it a tad larger than the design and iron it on. I haven't had any complaints and use it on all baby items I embroider. I know other cuties know the name of it.

I am not sure of the name, but there is a very thin sticky fabric, that you press on the inside of the shirt, to cover all the embroidery area...mayba at pointetopointe.com
