Adventures In Machine Embroidery 2022 Part 2

One of the first things that attracted me to the Hatch Embroidery digitizing software was it’s ability to export stitch lines as SVG cutting files for making applique designs. Having recently acquired the rotary blade for my Scan N Cut it seemed like the perfect opportunity to give this feature a whirl…

Missed Something?

Want to start at the beginning? If you have landed here from somewhere around the internet and have missed any of the previous posts in this series, you can find them all snuggled in this archive.

So, anyway, as I was saying, rotary blade, applique etc.

Having loved the free-motion embroidery style I wondered if it would be any easier doing this in the Hatch software – e.g. basically working it all out before stitching.

Well, if you are a normal person, very! This is me we are talking about though.

Despite that, I did manage to get the process pretty much correct and ended up with something stitched out.

Despite her sarcastic smirky face, it was actually quite a good result given it was a first go at a new process.

As you know, this is a craft that I am not an expert in and am really enjoying being able to grow through play.

Like a good boy, I did remember to record the process and have shoved the video up in the usual place.

Do have a watch when you can. If only because I may earn some pennies from YouTube, lol!

Oh, actually, before I share that, I did say that I would share the image that I digitized in case you want to have a go at this yourself, so here is the download button for that.

Ok, now back to the video.

  1. Awesome John. I love the design. You used a fabric glue for the dress but does the stitching also sew the dress in place?
    Thank you so much for sharing, although I don’t have a embroidery machine I love to see how you put your creativity in this. Have a wonderful Sunday.
