The first step is to plan where to stitch the design.

A template, or printout of a design, is an excellent tool to help with placement.

Print a template of the design from your embroidery software.
If you do not have embroidery software, Wilcom's TrueSizer is
a free program to use.

Arrange the template on the onesie until it's in the place where you want to stitch. Mark the center point, as well as the vertical and horizontal axis lines.
