ARTISTIC EMBROIDERY DESIGN COLLECTIONS: today we focus on FONT-TASTIC by Michael Miller Fabrics

I used the FONT-TASTIC  CD of designs from the ARTISTIC EMBROIDERY COLLECTION to stitch out a fun banner. There are 2 different colour ways on the CD to choose from. I noticed that each letter is quite different although there are recurring styles of digitizing through out the 26 alphabet designs so that it “hangs” together beautifully when combined into words.  Each letter is quite large – varies slightly but approx. 3 inches x 3 inches. This should fit into the smaller hoop on most Elna & other brand embroidery machines.

I could have enlarged the letters by 20% on the screen of the EL860 embroidery machine or even larger in DIGITIZING Embroidery software .

I also “played” with the colours a little as I choose to use just 3 colours on my banner: black, lime green & royal blue. So for some of the font designs, I “doubled up” on colours & repeated a little. I think I like the results.
