Satin Stitch

Padded Satin Stitch gives dimensional look to letters. To do so, first, stitch the letters on the back and then pack the small straight points (satin) on the back of the stitch. This gives the letter a full-size dimension and emphasizes the letter. 

If you have thicker letters, define the design with reverse stitches, and add chain stitches to the design. Do after the satin stitching. Do not use too thick lines (backstitch and chain stitch) for the initial fill; the specifics cannot be refined. Sew a tiny back piece when you hit the corner.
