Time Savers

If you are in a hurry, or have lots of shirts to embroider with the same design, there are designs that stitch quickly. Look for a design with a minimal number of thread colors. Every time you stop to change the thread, it takes time away from stitching. Single-color silhouette or outline designs will have maximum impact if your thread color contrasts well with the background fabric.

Appliqué can be a real time saver. Look for a design with a single appliqué element that makes up most of the design. Think of all the stitches you are saving! If your appliqué fabric adds texture or has an interesting print, no one will guess you were in a rush.

Want the most from your time? Create a freestanding ornament that can be used first as a package decoration, then also as an ornament or bookmark.

If you want to add lettering, use a cursive font so that the letters are connected. This will save you from clipping jump stitches between each letter.
