    Attach embroidery hoop:

    Attach the embroidery hoop so that the fabric stretches and you have a nice clean area to work with. In order to attach the hoop you will have to place the fabric on top of one of the circles and then slide the other piece on top so that it locks in place. You can now use the screws on the frame of the hoop to tighten it so that it does not slip or allow the fabric to move.

    Use alphabet transfer:

    Using the alphabet transfer, select the appropriate pattern for each letter for the motif. An alphabet transfer is a great way to make simple letters without much effort. Remember to take your time and ensure that the spacing is correct between the letters.
