A Guide to Perform Puff Embroidery Digitizing Perfectly


Puff embroidery digitizing is known as a piece of lettering and art that puffs out over the rest. Puffy foams are using to create raised embroidery. For creating the extra dimension in any design it is best to service to avail. As we all know about 3D embroidery but most of the people are not aware of puff embroidery. Let me tell you where the puff name comes from. The height of any design increases by using the puff and it also increases the depth so a puffy effect created. The puffy effect looks cool in embroidery. But you need to practice more to improve this skill like many others. The demand for puffy embroidery has been increased from a few years, particularly with hats and caps. If you will practice more, you can produce the best results with less time and production costs.

How to Sew a Puff Embroidery Design:

The process of puff embroidery digitizing is different from regular embroidery. There are some more stitches and more costs in this design.

  • First of all sew the flat embroidery
  • Make a stop in your machine
  • Place a puff above the desired area
  • Restart your machine
  • Sew the borders around the puffed area
  • Remove extra puff material

Steps To Start This Process:

Optimum Speed of Machine:First of all, you need to do the puff embroidery with satin stitch and use the optimum speed of your machine because the quality of the embroidered design is affected by it. You should slow your machine’s speed most of the time, unlike the normal orders. Every machine has its optimum speed. To figure out your machine’s optimum speed you have to try many tests. Use different speeds to find the best outcome. You need to create your design’s outline before applying the embroidery stitches. This outline can stabilize the embroidered area that you are going to use.

Avoid Slippery Fabrics: You should set the spacing of the stitch and avoid using slippery and delicate fabrics for 3D embroidery because of two reasons. Firstly, if you are working on foam your fabric must be susceptible in-hoop movement. Secondly, the density of stitching should be higher as compared to normal designs. Consequently, stable and thick fabrics are preferred like caps. Lofty fabrics are not good for puffy embroidery like towels. Because their loft can fade the 3d effect and fails to create the captivating designs. The use of sharp needles can make the perforations in the foam while working for 3D designs. Easy perforations mean that you can easily remove the foam afterward.

Consider The Height of Design: There is no need to use underlay for the puffy effect. You need to consider your design’s height that you are going to embroider in the selection of foam. If you want more protruded and puffy effect then your foam must be thicker and the height of your design must be higher. It is very tricky to work on the thick foam because it will create louder designs. Thicker foam can hinder the smooth functioning of any machine. Firstly you should start with the normal designs. You need to keep in mind all the essential factors that have an important role in the embroidery. After creating the flat designs, you should stop the process. While dealing with this digitizing you need to learn the stop program of your machine because it is the thing that you will use in your career a lot. If you are changing the colors, then you have to know that your machine is providing proper stops.  

Removal of foam is necessary so after the formation of your design gets rid of the excessive foam in puffy embroidery digitizing.
