Sieht doch gut aus. Muss ja nicht immer perfekt sein.

The layering of thread is what gives this design the lovely shading that you achieved. When I enlarge a design I increase it by10% or larger, but you have to keep an eye on it in your softare as open spaces and huge thread jumps can be a result.

You might try "masking" it in your software as that would remove stitching that is under the top thread. Again, this can result in the removal of thread that ruins the look of the design.

What I always do with a design that is dense is I add 1 to 3 layers of wss on top of the fabric. It adds a tiny extra space for the thread to the thread on top and allows the thread relax after you wash it. What you have to watch out for when doing this is that the stabliziers themselves can form a very dense layer and the needle may not be able to penetrate it. Don't use any spay glue on the wss to help eliminate this from happening.

As a last resort, If the design's density distorts (not puckering) the fabric and the fabric doesn't hang nicely, I spray starch the fabric around the design well being careful not to starch the design itself. This helps give the fabric a little stiffness to support the design.

for the attempt to help,
I believe, mine in English is too bad, to describe the problem.
If to increase an embroidery picture enlargedly without sting number one it cannot become hard. The Original is 174x246 in 86786 Stitches and my is 198x280 and the Stichtes ar 86786. I take one layer wss 80 on it.

Your English is great! I have the same problem you had with some designs! They can just be too stiff!

Wonderful job on the cat. It is beautiful. I hope washing improves the hardness for you.

Such a pity about the stiffness of the design on the jacket. At 86,000 stitches that is one large design. The cat looks great anyway, hopefully it will soften after a few washes. Love Chris

I also hope that it after him wash becomes softer. I have the problem over and over again with the designs from Urban, therefore, I make them already bigger, this also does not help. I do not know what I make wrong, as said only with the full sting designs from Urban . . and they are great, hugs Maria

Ein wunderschönes Katzenbild. Schade, daß es so hart geworden ist. Optisch ist es großartig. Ich hoffe, man kann die Jacke noch tragen.

Lieben Dank, ich werde sie mehrfach waschen, davon wir sie nicht schöner LOL, zum Glück habe ich das Muster nicht auf den Neuen Blazer gestickt, was ich erst machen wollte . . bei meiner Maschine waren das vier Stunden sticken . . .

Nice design. You said you are not real happy with it. Did you put WWS stabilizer on the top when you stitched it out? As you put it on fleece it may have needed it to sit nice.

I still think it is good.

The embroidered has become board-hard, in some share it is embroidered five times, because I have increased the file without embroidery number to raise this might not happen at all . . it is 280x198 mm 86.700 Stitches, and i put water-dissolvable foil/ stabilizer on it . . . excuse my bad one in English, Maria

Your English is pretty good I can understand what you mean. I can only speak one language so I think you are so clever.
What a shame it is hard to the feel. May not be your fault I have bought designs with the same problem at times. Hopefully it may soften with washing.

by pennyhal2 18 Feb 2018

This is a magnificent cat! Your thread choices are vibrant and a great stitchout!
