Changing colors in Embroidery Tool Shed

If you're not sure whether to add applique to this cute design or not, let's just look at it and see:

The applique area is a rectangle, about 1.3 inches in the longest dimension.  If you're going to add text, you'll want to find a very small font.  This small area makes it perfect for a tiny scrap of very special fabric, too.

Color stops 7, 8, 9 are the applique stops.  You can color them all the same, or all different.  The only one that will show when you're finished stitching is #9.

At the bottom of your Embroidery Tool Shed window is a list of color stops, arranged as numbered swatches of color.

To change one of the colors, just click on the swatch. This will bring up a color selection window. There you can select the new color you want this color stop to be.

I colored all three of my appolique stops red.
