More than hand-made gifts, I love personalized gifts! Who doesn’t?! Even if you already have a similar item, anything with your name on it instantly becomes your favourite keep-sake. Do that for someone else with this very easy sewing machine letter embroidery tutorial.
You will need:
- Two pieces of fabric. One you are embroidering onto, e.g. a quilt, pillow case, etc, and one for the actual letters.
- Printer and paper
- Sewing machine
Step 1: Print the word outline, cut it out and pin it in place.
Step 2: Sew around the outline on top of the paper.
Step 3: Tear the paper off very carefully.
Step 4: Carefully cut around the sewn letters.
Step 5: Change the sewing machine settings to Zig-zag, 4.5 stitch width and 0.3 length .
Step 6: Now that the letters are sewn on, it will be easy to zig-zag stitch around them.
Step 7: Step back and enjoy your creation!
