The Sunday Stitch – Digitizing A Mandala Design Part 2

If you didn’t catch last week’s post, just head to the blog post archive and you’ll find it there along with a load of others. Worth a rummage if you’ve got a few mins spare.

Anyhoo, onto this post.

When I last left you I had digitized the backgrounds for the outer and inner areas of the Mandala design and made a started on the decorative top-stitching.

In this part, I will be digitizing the thicker borders and the central design.

As a reminder, here is the end result.

Just before I get to the video bit, I’d like to let you know two things.

  1. This design is now for sale on Creative Fabrica.
  2. Ignore point 1 because as a loyal reader of this blog, you can have it for free if you click here! It’s available in a bunch of different formats so should work with most embroidery machines that can handle two colours and 10,000 stitches. All file formats will be downloaded in one zipped folder.

If you do download and stitch it out, I’d love for you to tag me when you share your pics on social media. Relevant links are at the top of this page.

Right. Time to get digitizin’!

As with my previous posts, I will be using Hatch Digitizing software, a home-user version of the all-mighty Wilcom professional software. If you’d like to road-test it for yourself, a free 30-day trial can be snaffled over at the Hatch Embroidery Website.

Ready? Just hit play …

Hopefully see you back here again for part 2 next week.

Thanks for stopping by and I look forward to sharing more with you soon!

Bye for now.
