This is what I want:

Image of an A made up of evenly spaced bars

This is how I achieved it:

same image as above, but showing the top layer is actually lines covering an A

My goal is to have this embroidered, but I don't want the white bars as part of that. I want it to be true negative space so it would just be whatever I put it on. What is the best way to achieve this in Inkscape?

The path->difference operation could help:

  1. to use this the yellow A needs to be a path rather than a letter. If this is not the case, convert the letter into a path. Same for the stripes. If they are strokes rather than paths, convert them.

  1. select both the yellow letter and a white bar (red in my picture) and choose the path->difference menue

  1. the resulting shape:
