My software is Bernina Artista V5 (can't justify the cost of an upgrade). This is not the definitely way of making inchies but to me its the easiest. If you have another software make I'm sure there will be something very similar so this tutorial can be used by you.
Draw a square by using the grid lines. To do this click your mouse point in the corner of one of the grid squares, hold the shift key down and pull your mouse diagonally until the square covers the grid lines. Let go, press enter and your square now has the pattern you chose inside it.
This time change the stitch to 'Outline' and select satin stitch, change the colour so you can see whats happening. Go to the Object Properties page again and change the width of the satin stitch to a small one. I used 0.10in but you can choose whatever you think appropriate. Click OK and draw a box round your pattern square by clicking your mouse in the top left corner and pulling your mouse diagonally until you reach the opposite corner. Press enter and your inchies now have a satin stitch border round them.
At this point you have a choice. If you want your inchies to sew out as one piece, ie all the same colour then you need to group the two squares. To do this press Ctrl A (to select all) and press the group key which is (on my software) at the bottom of the screen 1st one on the left.
If you would like your inchies to have a different coloured border then just save the file and the software will stop once the pattern has been sewn out ready for you to change the colour of the border.
I repeated the process to make enough inchies to fit into my hoop then grouped them together and saved as one file.
Have fun and I hope you could follow the tutorial.
