You have three ways to get your digitized embroidery onto your fabric:1 - Attach to the embroidery frame with embroidery hoops or mat boards. The instructions for the hoops can be found here:2 - Place sample in embroidery digitizing machine. The directions for the embroidery digitizing machine can be found here:3 - Position the fabric digitally and sew immediately.We recommend that you sew it right away because the embroidery will hold up better than the embroidered fabric if it is allowed to dry for some time.
If your design is not one of the designer templates available for download, you will need to stitch your digitized design out yourself and we will send you a drawing to guide you along. We recommend that you create your original design on a computer before starting on the project. Once you have digitized your design, you can print it out on a transparent vinyl, fabric or plastic sheet. If you don’t have any vinyl, fabric or plastic, you can also use what we are calling “Post-it Stickers” - they are just a strip of post-it paper, available at a local office supply store. Once you have your piece of fabric, or plastic, you can use it to trace onto your vinyl, fabric or plastic sheet. Cut out the shape and peel off the lines, creating a perfect template. You can now embroider on your new vinyl, fabric, or plastic sheet.
