For the letters I wound up printing out the name on my computer on regular paper, tracing them reversed on the back of the paper, and cut the out. For the fabric I used a fusible interfacing first and then carefully pinned them and cut them out. Then I hand basted them on and then machine stitched them. For my first name I got a lot of practice since it was a long one! :)
