Adventures In Machine Embroidery 2022 Part 4

This week I decided to build on some of the experiments that I have been doing over the months and try to combine various automatic features of the Hatch embroidery digitizing software with some of the manual digitizing tools.

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.

Look At What I Made!

Here is a picture of the stitched design that I created this time around.

S’nice, innit?

Getting To The Point

Anyhoo, as mentioned, I combined a plethora of digitizing tools in this project including the PhotoStitch feature along with manual digitizing tools.

The result was a little dark in tone and so I would likely run it through with different colours in the future however overall I was very happy with it.

Most surprising of all is that this took less than 30 minutes to digitize – does this mean that I am getting the hang of this or does it mean that Hatch is an awesome piece of software … ?
