Applique Design Available in the Following Sizes and Formats:
All letters are available in ONE SIZE, varying from 2.5" to 4.00", and have been sized according to their size ratio to other letters in the set. For example, the "d" is larger than the "a" so that they maintain the same relative size in the body of the letter. Depending upon the letters that you are using and your own personal esthetic, you might need to size up or down an individual letter by up to 20%. Please see the different product views to get the actual size of each letter.
This alpha also includes a PLAIN version of each letter, so that you can use a combination of embellished and plain letters, as desired for your project. We've also included a set of stars, should you wish to scatter those around your name.
Please note: The letters will fit 4x4 hoops but WILL NEED TO BE REHOOPED to accommodate longer names. Our tester was able to do our sample at full size on a size 4 shirt without rehooping in a 7x11 hoop.
By purchasing this alpha, you are agreeing that you have read and understand this. If you have a smaller hoop, you are going to have to rehoop your design. If you don't want to rehoop, please don't buy the design. PLEASE remember that the letters are hand drawn and not done in software, and there are imperfections - they're not all capital letters, they're not all lower case letters. They're an artistic interpretation of a fun princess alpha. Please take a look at each letter and be sure that it meets your approval prior to purchasing the alpha.
We have done our absolute best to make the letters PERFECTLY proportional, but we can't keep the detail and make them any smaller. Depending upon the letter combinations you are using, you may decide to size individual letters up or down for the look you're wanting to create.
DST, EXP, JEF, HUS, PES, VIP and XXX. Bernina users, please use .EXP or .PES files depending upon your machine model.
Experiment with how you layer your letters. Choose a couple of your favorites and layer them over top of the other letters, and they will appear more prominent. If you have a long name and a smaller hoop, you might need to re-hoop in order to accommodate all of the letters. Slightly skewing or rotating each letter will help in the event that you are slightly off on your re-hoop.
