    I think it will be fine what do you think? I would change it if it would look better. I want to have a friend put "Madison is a Star" on the strip two rows down. I have more to add so it will be bigger. Thanks for your opinions

    I love your colors. To me, the strip reads a little narrow, particularly if you will make the entire top larger. I wonder what it would look like with a double-wide stripe?

    Another option (just thinking outside the box) is to put an identical stripe in the identical position from the other end with a different message embroidered there.

    I will try that & see how it looks. I thought it might be too narrow but it was already cut so I tried it. Widder might be better.Thanks

    Love the colors :thumbup: Great Job :mrgreen:

    I think I like the thought of a second strip down lower to break it up a bit , does that make sense ?

    I have decided to widen the strip as it will look better. But not putting one at the bottom. Its just a simple four square but she is only 5 so I know she will like it, expecially when it will have her name & say she is a Star.

    Thanks for the suggestions & comments!

    I second this idea, I love having everything equal. Pretty colors.
