Once you make a monogram patch, you’ll know why patches are #8 on my 2019 Holiday gift-making list! It’s so easy in Inspiration’s Perfect Embroidery Pro. Open a new file in Perfect Embroidery Pro. Select the artwork tool and the Ellipse.
Hold the Ctrl key down on the keyboard and drag the cursor across the screen to create a perfect circle. Size the circle to 2.25″ for left chest embroidery. Select the circle, right click and select Convert to Applique.
Select the Text Tool. Type the three-letter monogram in the Properties Box and select the Circle Monogram from the list of fonts. Size the monogram to fill the 2.25″ circle. Change the color of the monogram if you don’t want it to stitch in the same color as the applique outline.
Save the design in the appropriate format and stitch it on the heavy-duty water soluble found in the Patch Maker Kit (special offer this week!). Then follow the instructions in the Patch Maker Kit to permanently attach the patch. Watch last week’s Facebook Live video to learn more. You’ll find tips on using patches on slippers, shoes, down jackets, children’s wear and more!
