I thought I would show you how I made it. I traced the letters on tracing paper and then pinned it to the accordion pad. Then I used the free motion foot to trace around the letters and removed the paper.
Next I just filled in the letters with the gold thread (gold and black are the school colors. I used King Tut Quilting Thread from Superior Threads (100% cotton) on top and just a white thread that I used for the bobbin when I appliqué.
I just sewed back and forth or up and down until it was mostly filled in.
I kind of like how it turned out.
It's fun to be able to do little jobs for family members. Sewing does come in so handy for so many things.
