Adventures In Machine Embroidery 2022 Part 1

It’s time for another adventure in machine embroidery and this time I would like to share with you my very first attempt at creating an in-the-hoop mug rug.

Now, do be gentle with me as yes, there are things that I don’t know and I am still learning so things don’t always go to plan – as I am sure we all know all too well at the moment.

Anyhoo, I’ll try and keep to the point. I kept this design simple so that I could focus a little more on the process. It did take me a little thinking – and slurping of tea – as it involved applying sewing techniques to an embroidered design.

Not that crazy for those of you that may have been doing this for years but defo something for a hobbyist dabbler like me.

Thankfully it was all made a lot easier with Hatch Embroidery Digitizing software as I could chop/change and generally change my mind as often as I needed. Phew!

It will be a lot easier if I show you what I did rather than get RSI typing the whole thing out so let me just say that you are welcome to download this design along with the design info sheet. I will pop a link below the video.

In the meantime, here is what I created.

I mean, it’s not totally terrible, lol!

Here is that video of how it all came together, mostly.

Just hit play and have a slurp of your lovely beverage.
