Backing for Embroidered Onesies???

I have been embroidering baby onesies and the underside always feels rough. I want to put a backing to protect baby's skin from any irritation. I tried buying fusible web and placing a layer of white cotton ribbing as a backing, but on the white onesie this looks terrible because the cotton ribbing creates a bright white area under the patter. What else can I use to create a smooth surface over the embroidered area? Thanks!

Depending on the thickness of the fabric, I use one of three different things: Washaway stabilizer (looks like plastic wrap), tissue paper, (which tears easily) or coffee filters (the round type) because they tear easily but are a little "beefier" than the tissue paper.

I believe this is what you are looking for.

Adhesive backed, iron-on Tricot interfacing also works. You can usually find this with the other interfacings at your local fabric store, near the cutting table. If you can't find it, ask.

I use Fluriani dream weave to back my embroidery for my DD.

I just bought some Sulky Tender Touch and one of the uses for it is to cover scratchy embroidery designs. I use it as stabilizer but it might be an option for you.

I use cloud cover stitch. Bought it at Amazon. On stuff for the grandkids I used 2 layers.
