How to Combine Letters from a Purchased Alphabet

Here are some answers to a question that comes up quite often! Let's see if I can be of help!

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

In order to use the small letters to form a name, you will need embroidery software that allows you to combine designs.

Do you have any embroidery software that lets you combine designs?

If you don't, you can make the name manually. I like to use a piece of masking tape (or transparent tape) to mark the bottom of where the letters would go. Then stitch each letter along that line seperately.

Having the software is much easier and effective. If you do not have embroidery software, I highly recommend Embird (www.Embird.com) It's the most affordable software on the market, has outstanding customer service, and it can do almost everything you need. Embird can edit, such as change colors, rotate designs, combine designs, find actual design sizes, convert formats and much more.

Software programs such as Embird and others will make bringing those letters together a cinch!

*A video tutorial will be coming out soon to show the process of combining letters and stitching onto the desired project!
