third posting in less than a week sheesh embroidering clothing

Ergo the user name LOL! Anywho, how in the heck do I go about embroidering something on a polo shirt or baby onesie? I have this contraption that attaches to my machine (Brother SE-350) and I can't for the life of me figure out how to hoop the clothing. I figured out a hard way, take apart the clothing item and then sew it together again. PLEASE tell me there is a better way or another attachment I can buy!!! I hope I'm not destined to only embroider flat fabric (sigh). Thanks for helping.

You turn it almost inside out and pin the extra out of the way. Stabilize the knit before attaching it to the hoop using your favorite menthod. You will have to sit there and babysit the machine to make sure it stays out of the needle's way.

The onesie is easy. Remember how you gather the back of the shirt up to get it over baby's head? Do the same and then stick the front on the hoop, and then pin or tape the excess out of the way.

Thank you for your reply. I will go to a thrift store and buy some items to get the hang of it so I don't ruin anything I want to make as gifts.
