If someone in your life is celebrating a birthday soon, they’ll love the star treatment they’ll get wearing this design from our Erich! He loves retro type, so he set up this old-school warped bubble-letter design in classic colors, then digitized it in StitchArtist Level 3, ready for for stitching on caps and flat goods.

Erich created this design with versatility in mind- if you have a cylindrical cap frame, you’ll love how this design works from the bottom up and center out, but it works just as well for flat goods, too. Each word starts with a base fill, but includes a curved sketch accordion fill to accentuate the cool warped layout.

If you prefer a lighter look, you can easily edit the included BE file to remove the base fills, sketch fills, or everything but the borders for a single-color version. When you have the working file, you have the power! Though Erich’s version is subtle in tone, each word has its own color so you can customize each separately; make those colors as wild as you want!

The design is provided in our native .BE format, enabling you to save a stitch file for any embroidery machine. If you aren’t already an Embrilliance owner, we provide a free method to use our software called Express Mode that will not only allow you to use any of the wonderful free designs found in our project blog, but also enables you to install and create basic text treatments with fonts distributed in our popular .BX format produced by many embroidery design creators.
