This is the first time I'd made an embroidery design from scratch using my Embird software. Previously I'd only ever imported existing embroidery designs and altered them. Okay, so this was only two letters on an angle but it's a start!
My end result:
We tried using metallic thread but it just ended up white because the gold stripped off the thread as it was being sewn. I think I might need to get 'metallic' needles or something for using metallic thread. In the end, this gold coloured thread looked fine.
I'm rather pleased with the result if I do say so myself! It's so great to be able to make something so 'proper' looking with what I already have at home.
