How open file you can read here For example, used he design of Fashion teddy bear design from our embroidery library. The format is chosen arbitrarily. Open the design you want to resize. Click on Upscale design. Increase the size of your design either by percent or by a certain number of cm. (I added 10%). Press OK. As you can see in the lower left corner of the window, your design is now bigger than it was, but the number of stitches remains the same. This means that the embroidery may look a bit bald when finished. And we don’t know that, do we? Press Ctrl + A to select the entire design. Ultimately, left-click on any part of the background and drag to enclose the entire design. You’ll see a rectangular frame around it. Now, go to Stitches > Auto Density > Apply. My Editor has automatically added the stitches in the required places. You can see that your stitch count went up. All that is left is to store your design where you want it on your computer.
Patches Do you tremble when a customer comes in and asks you to do embroidery patches, patches is not as difficult as it may seem, but even if you do not want to digitize and make the patches your self you can out source the patches to companies that specialize in that sort of thing. Today we will take a look at digitizing tips for patches, supplies you will need and general information about patches. Equipment and supplies needed 12 x 12 hoop or 20 x 28 hoop tearaway backing (optional) Color of twill for the fabric Sheet of Heat n Press Glue Frabic fray check glue heat press or industrial iron Digitiizng the embroidery design In the example below I have made a karate style patch with a black fill , white fill for the karate man, a run stitch for his outline and satin stitch for the lettering , and using the Pulse Font Judo Kick for the text. The border is a steil stitch with a density of 85 spi and has perpendicular and zig zag underlay. In Tajima DGML by Pulse Version 14 or Tajima DG15 the embroidery digitizing software comes with a utility to make embroidered patches, and its fairly easy to do and works with a wide range of embroidery design types, 1. Digitize the file, save it to your PC 2. Goto File New , 3. CLICK on the PATCHES icon and a wizard will come up. 3. Once the file has been generated then we can goto through the process for hooping your fabric. I would recommend that you hoop the twill by itself but if you want backing to stabilize the twill use tearaway. 4. Load the embroidery design on your machine , center the embroidery designs and trace to make sure it fits. 5. Embroider the patches. 6. Remove from hoop , press to flatten the patches, ( recommend at heat press @ 320 degrees for 5 seconds 7. With some Fray check or clear glue , coat the edge of the threads around the patch. 8. Tear away the backing 9. Cut them into smaller pieces, and heat press Heat n Bond or similar glue material using a heat press for 10 seconds. @ 320 degrees 10. Trim around the steil stitch as close as possible, 11 . With the Fray Glue go around the edge to seal up any loose ends, repeat for all the patches.. Thats how easy it is to make a patch.
