I don't have the good software yet ... Not sure if it can do Better ??
Like I said .. Embroidery patterns do not have the resolution of a Picture.
Here's what I have so far ..
The conversion to DST changed the thread colors .. the person doing the Embroidery will have to choose the colors based on a picture

Are you sure you don't want to Iron-on a picture ???

hmmm thats awesome that it is a DST atleast....
is there a way in the program that i could add more detail?
should i get a higher resolution picture?
should i make the picture have more contrast in light and dark so it picks up more then 3 colours?

NO .. Thread is thicker that an Inkjet dot ... And the machines do not accurately position the thread as close as we would like.

NO .. In order to digitize this .... I had to redraw the picture in Photoshop to simplify it ...
so the digitizing software could find the edges .. Then I had to manually Stitch within the edges in the digitizing software.

I could have increased the number of thread colors .. But I didn't think it would make the pattern look better.

I was debating about adding one extra color ... Like attached ..
But I can only add it in big areas because of the stitching resolution and I didn't think this would add much to the looks of the final pattern.

Are you sure you don't want to Iron-On a Picture ??

Going to be gone today .. Maybe later, I'll see what I can do.
I can stitch in any thread color in any boundary .. That was a rework to establish the boundaries.
The digitizing software will remake the line outline from this picture.

I really wanted to wait and see if I got the other software ...
The person that has it, Has never used it .. Maybe I can borrow it indefinitely

I can foresee some problems here.
Does that Hat Store do the embroidery ... Or have someone else do it ???
I'm afraid you're going to spend some money and not be happy with the results.

I still think you should get some White Hats ..
Print the picure to some iron-on transfer paper ..
And iron-on the picture your self.

You can also Print the picture to Cloth ... And sew the cloth on the hat.
I'm going to wait and see if I get the other software .. Cross your fingers

I suspect the people doing the Embroidery may not be able to use my Patterns.
They will have to use some intelligence and manually choose the correct thread color.

the hat store does it.
i will b at the store when they do it and i can b there "intelligence" and i wont let them print it if it doesnt look the way i want it to.
in which case i will take my stuff and leave and either live without the hat or try ur other segustions.

but if they can have a patteren like this http://www.icejerseys.com/images/neo...khawks_big.jpg

Good .. They will have a better choice of thread colors ...
and can choose something you'd like better.

You could choose a different hair color on this one for a Black Hat.

I have no idea how this'll actually look when Stitched.
They should be able to get a better idea with their software.
