I did an applique on a babies onsie. I'd like to put something on the inside to cover up the threads so it is softer against babies skin. I"ve seen it done on some RTW clothes I have.

What do I use?

Good question, Wendy. I do machine embroidery and have wondered the same thing. It gets mighty scratchy back there.

I'll be watching for an answer too.

There is an iron on tricot interfacing that works well. It is what many clothing mfgs use. You can buy it by the yard at most fabric stores.
