The following is the font imported into the Font Gallery during a recent webinar.
I was told by a friend that fonts with puffy foam in the design must be digitized using special techniques, to allow for several things:
- No underlay. This makes sense, as the foam itself will provide local stability.
- Proper “pinching” at the corners, to prevent the foam from being seen at the edges.
- The font itself, plus the stitches on the puffy foam, will work best if a dense satin colum is used.
- Funky stitching, to “cut” the edges of the foam once secured.
- Some sort of border line, to fully hide the foam, once it is cut off from the design.
The photo above shows everything that is wrong when the font is not digitized for puffy foam. However, I think it is pretty cool that I was able to use the foam to get a 3D effect. I will be able to use this in some appliqué designs!
