Looks like you are off to a good start. For centering are you using the grid template that came with your hoop?

Put your hoop inside of the onesie (with stabilizer on it) and then place your grid inside the onesie to see if you are centered. Then pin it in place and iron on your stabilizer. If I get a chance to work with my embroidery machine tonight I can take a picture.

Fold your shirt in half, use your marker to mark that middle. I use a quilting (since I can see through it and line it up with your other line) ruler to mark the vertical line, that way you have the exact center where you want your design.

The easiest way to get an item centered that I have found is:

1) Fold your onsie or shirt in half
2) Iron the center crease line (with steam)
3) Hoop only the stabilizer
4) With a pen mark the center line (vertical line)
4) Stitch the placement line directly onto the stablizer (no clothing yet)
As you get better you will see that you will not need to stitch the
entire placement stitch, only the beginning or top portion of the design
5) Take the onsie and turn it inside out
6) Pin it on to the stablizer, taking note of where the placement stitch has been made. The placement stitch allows you to feel or see if you need to move the onsie up or down etc.
7) As long as the center of your onsie (that you made with the iron) is pinned directly onto the center of the stablizer mark you made then you are fine. The only thing you have to worry about from there is moving the item up or down before pinning it (you judge this based on the placement stitch that you made on the stablizer).
8)This eliminates the need to use pens to mark your clothing. The pens can be a pain. Either you have to erase them, wait for them to dissaper which they don't always do, or use water to make them vanish. Using only the iron prevents all that mess.
9) If you worried because you already stitched your placement stitch onto the stablizer, then you can always go back on your machine and restitch that.

Hope that makes sense. I tried to explain it the best way I can. I've done over 300 now without the pen and using only this method and it's worked beautifully.
