How-To Tip for embroidering raised letters
Have you ever seen a hat or a design on a bag with a raised letter and wondered how they did that? It is not a setting on your machine or certain kind of font. You can actually use art foam! It can be found in the craft section and it comes in various sheet sizes and a wide range of colors. You put it under the material for appliqué. Use the spray adhesive in between the material and foam to keep it in place. Once it stitches the outline on the material/foam, stop the machine trim the edges and continue with your design. It really makes the letter/design look dimensional.
