How to Stitch a Onesie with Hoop Guard

Don’t you hate it when you’re working on a large (or small project) and as soon as you turn your back on the machine, a portion of the fabric (that’s not in the hoop) falls into the sewing field? It never seems to fail that the more time and materials I have invested in a project, the more trouble happens down the road.  Last summer, I was quilting several large quilts – bed size quilts – on my embroidery machine.  I spent many hours, repositioning the quilt to quilt a new area and several times, the quilt roll would fall into the sewing field.  Luckily, I was nearby, so I was able to avoid disaster. But it got me thinking, couldn’t there be a device that creates a barrier between the roll and the sewing field?

After a trip to the hardware store and a bit of experimentation, I met with our engineer. Several prototypes later, Hoop Guard was born.  I’m so excited about this new product!  I’ve used it on quilts and bulky terrycloth towels but I recently discovered how handy it is for small items too.  Let me show you how it works for an onesie.

Fuse polymesh cut-away stabilizer to the wrong side of the front of the suit. Mark the location of the design and turn the snap suit inside out.

Since a baby’s snap suit is small, select a small Monster Snap Hoop (4” x 4”).  Separate the metal frame from the top magnetic frame. Bottom frame embroidery hoop

Place the onesie over the metal frame, with the suit’s front (design area) laying on the frame. Position the neck at the bottom (closest to you) of the frame. Onesie on hoop

Attach the Hoop Guard to the bottom of the magnetic frame (the part closest to you when attached to the machine). Hoop Guard snaps onto the bottom of the magnetic frame with the barrier on the outside of the frame. Hoop Guard onto frame

Insert the magnetic frame with the Hoop Guard into the suit from the leg opening.  Thread Hoop Guard through the neck.  Hoop Guard Onesie

Pull the bulk of the suit over the Hoop Guard, exposing the design area.  Easy onesie

Attach the hoop to the machine. Verify the top and bottom frames are aligned with your hands. Trace the design to verify the needle will only stitch on the design area.  HG6 HG7 hg8

Add water soluble stabilizer over the design area and stitch the design. HG9

Voila!  HG10

I love Hoop Guard – it’s so handy for many embroidery tasks.   If you’d like to learn more about it, you can watch a video here.

    I belong to a Red Hat Society group and a number of us have “special friends”, usually a Build a Bear, that we take to our luncheons and other outings that we do. Our group will celebrate their 10th anniversary next Feb. and we are getting t-shirts made for our chapter. I want to do the same embroidery on small shirts for our “special friends” and this would help so much in the embroidery process.

    Oh my, this is a hard decision. I can see needing this on a whole lot of projects. Can you use two, one on side and one on front? I guess I would pick a t-shirt, as I seem to always have trouble with them, but then the quilt I just finshed would sure have been easier with the guard.

    I have been putting off doing another large cut work design on a vest T-shirt top for myself since the first one I did managed to get caught 5 times. I was using the largest hoop I had and it was a tight fit for the shirt, I must admit, but it took me 3 times longer than it should have since I had to keep unpicking when it got caught. Once I even had to remove the embroidery foot & cut it off the machine, it got so well caught up.
    I think 3 guards would be good in this case, one on each side & one on the front.
    Please can I win just one? My shirt & sanity will depend on it!
    Not to mention the other garments I have that really need nice big designs on them. I really hate to have to open up a side seam and it’s a nightmare when sleeves are involved too.

    I have a brand new grandson that I make onesies for. I just made a St. Patrick’s day onesie and I babysat it for the whole stitching time. My shoulders all scrunched up and I even slowed the machine down so I could keep a closer eye on it. This sounds like a wonderful invention and hopefully you make your first million with this idea!

    I make onesies for almost all the babies born in the family, for the girls , I usually add a little skirt. It really is a headache trying to keep the material out of the sewing area and because of this I usually opt for larger onesies, instead of using the new born size. The hoop guard will definitely make this so much easier. This could also be used on sleeves, pants legs, bags. Great invention!

    I have avoided embroidery on small items such as the onsies and small t shirts and dresses for my grand daughter. I had the problem with a small onsie getting caught in my needle and it took me a long time to get the mess straightened out. I ruined the onsie, and severely damaged my ability to embroider small items. I have just refused and have let the onsies I purchased sit at the bottom of a box. I am afraid to try this even. I would love to be able to do these items, but my fear is probably too great. This does look possible. good luck to the other readers. Sue

    I have new twin great-nephews who just got to come home from the NICU a week ago and another great-nephew due in a couple of months. I found a design the other day that says I graduated the NICU (or something like that) that I would love to put on onesies for them. I also have another great-nephew due in a couple of months that I’d love to make onesies for. It would sure get a lot of use from me:):)

    I might be more tempted to embroider a onesie with this. I quit trying those a long time ago, and the smaller tee shirts. I can see where this would be really handy and save a whole lot of pinning.

    This would be useful on so many things, but I would probably start with the t-shirts I want to do for the grandkids. Looks like it would make the process go so much more smoothly.

    I have never tried a onesie just because it seems too difficult to get only one layer under the needle. This would be a great help.

    This tool looks amazing. I would use it first on a bunch of T-shirts that I make. I have 4 grandchildren that have benefited from being in the NICU unit. We always have family teams that participate in the March of Dimes walk and I embroidery on T-shirts for everyone.

    I probably would not be able to use it in a onesie because the only small snap hoop that would fit my machine would be the 120×120. Other than that I do embroider on tees and sweatshirts so this is probably where it would come in handy.

    I am a newbie to the world of embroidery. I have completed 3 onesies and did find it very difficult to keep the excess suit out of the way. I sat at the machine to ‘guard’ the material. I used clips and even clothespins to help keep the material out of the way. These methods worked, but not with complete confidence. After watching the video of the hoop guard, I feel that it would be a great addition to my beginning collection of embroidery items and would be a perfect solution for keeping the excess material from slipping under the needle.

    So many things I would use this for, where to begin. Have a grandson I want to do shirts for, my sons friend had a baby in Jan & a friend is due in a week. I have ruined many things because of it getting stiched in the design.

    I would start with embroidering on blank onesies for my very small eight month old granddaughter, then add embroidery to small and ex-small blank t-shirts for her older brothers. They are all small in size, and I have to babysit my machine every time I embroider on their clothes. I’ve broken needles, cracked my needle plate, and had to buy a new embroidery foot for my Brother machine! So, I would love to win the Hoop Guard! I have the 5″X7″ Snap Hoop, so getting a 4″X4″ would probably save extra money repairing and replacing parts of my machine also!! Thanks for the chance to enter this contest Eileen!
