Stitching with metallic thread

Is there an easy way of stitching with metallic thread without it unraveling? It's hard to stitch it evenly especially on a baby bib that is uneven itself. I'm only doing an full stitch outline in it. Thanks.

    Raeharley,
    When I stitch with metallic thread, I use one piece metallic thread and one piece of floss called for in the pattern depending on the fabric count used. I've done this for years and it makes it much easier to use the metallic thread.
