Would you like to have more creative control over your embroidery projects without having to learn to digitize? Would you like your embroidery to reflect your own unique design sense? Would you like to get more out of your embroidery design stash?
The best--and easiest--way to achieve this is to work with simpler design elements (like those in the Building Block series
from Lindee G Embroidery) and combine them in basic customizing software that lets you rotate, mirror, and resize.
In this session, I'll be demonstrating how to work with smaller design elements to build interesting motifs and repeating patterns using a basic customizing program. I'll also show you a variety of finished samples to inspire your own projects. Our class projects include a screen mesh organizer, easy-to-make baby bonnet, and child's t-shirt made into a fun spring dress.
While at first glance these projects appear to have nothing in common, all three use design elements from a handful of Building Block collections combined for a unique result, and they all use specialty hooping techniques. All three are also easy, quick-to-construct basic sewing projects.
The focus of these projects is more on the design elements and composition: design combining, color considerations, placement; plus embroidery techniques for hooping, stabilizing, and finishing, which are techniques you'll be able to apply to many other items that may be more to your taste and style. We'll discuss important considerations for resizing, color-sorting, and advanced optimizing.
Building Blocks were originally created for Generations owners but they also work great if you have any customizing program. If you have an editor, you can do even more elaborate customizing. Today's more advanced machines also offer the ability to combine, rotate, mirror and move designs on-screen.
