Define the form of the font

  • Highlight "Happy" and open the text box options. Select the desired shape. We have chosen a wave-shaped form.

  • Select "Easter" and choose the same text box.
  • The shape of the text box can also be adjusted. If the text is highlighted, red triangles will appear at the corners. If you click on one of these triangles, it can be dragged around to move the corner.

  • A red line with a round endpoint will also appear. This can also be moved to alter the curvature of the baseline. This allows you to make the shape flatter, for example.

  • Shape your text until you are happy with it.
  • Highlight both words. Switch to "Select" and choose "Select All". Or, it's even easier with Ctrl + A on the keyboard. Rotate the lettering to 0°.

Embroider the lettering

  • Print the rabbit out on transfer paper and cut it out around the edge of the design.
  • Place the printed text as well as the rabbit on the table runner to determine the positioning. It is best for the lettering if you mark the center with a textile pen.

  • Secure the stabilizer onto the underside of the table runner using spray adhesive and put the runner into the hoop. The embroidery template will help you hoop it precisely.
