Frequently Asked Questions about Stitch n' Paint Embroidery Designs
What fabric paints do you recommend?
To color the pink and red Stitch n' Paint Love design, I used a combination of Jacquard Lumiere textile paints, regular textile paint, Fabrico markers, and a black pigma pen.
Really any acrylic paint, colored pencils, or fabric markers will work great for this project!
Can I resize the designs?
Most embroidery machines allow you to resize the designs between 10 - 20% and yes, the design will still look good when resized within this amount.
If you wish to resize the designs much, much bigger then you'll need to use digitizing software to resize and export the design. The difference is your machine will resize the shapes, but not increase the number of stitches within the design. It will just make the stitches bigger.
Digitizing software will compensate for the increase in design size with an increased stitch count. So with digitizing software you should be able to resize to any size and still create a beautiful design.
Do keep in mind that this design measures 5 x 7 inches (127 x 177 mm) and if resized, you will likely require a larger hoop to stitch it properly.
