Continuing on with my adventures in machine embroidery this week by digitizing a sketched hibiscus flower. Some things worked, some didn’t but it’s all about a personal learning journey so do join me and see what went down.
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 the final stitched design.
Fresh, floral, fancy!
Getting To The Point
I was happy overall but again, as with last week’s design, I would likely change up the colours; perhaps even reduce the border to a single stitch.
There were also a few jump stitches that I missed in the final tidy up but I can fiddle with those another time.
Hatching An Idea
Want to see how this idea became reality? Well, you are in luck as I put this video together to show you how I achieved this technique. Just hit play and have a slurp of your lovely beverage.
