Twelve months ago I got my embroidery machine
and the software for digitizing . At the time I recieved it
I gave it a good shot of learning the software BUT
then I got a little sidetracked and stopped using the
soft ware for a while.
Now I have a goal of learning it completely and being
able to do anything I want .
With the bag I put on my blog the other day HERE
I learnt a lot while making that pattern (and enjoyed it)
and all I could think about was my next pattern and next one after
that , so even though this week having Martyn for a visit because i
don't sleep much I am in here at time when the two are both asleep.
So I gave a cook brick person a go at HAND digitizing ( not a
fan of the button on the software that does it for you (as it
does not do a great job of over laps and tracing ))
Here is the towel I made
I am soo amazed that with lots of planing in the designing
that the image only took 30 minutes to sew and it is
way softer and neater than the ones that I was designing back
twelve months ago
I am looking forward to hearing what you all think of this effort .
I am working on a few more (OK a lot more) things
that I will be showing soon (yes as well as I will be showing
my pop ups I am working on too I have not got sidetracked
from Pop up card studio )
By the way for those that don't know that Martyn is a
Chef and I made this for him!
