Adventures In Machine Embroidery 2022 Part 18

I enjoyed last week’s little play with some ready made inspiration so this week I went hunting for a simple design that I could make into something a little out of the ordinary. Stumbling across a silhouetted flamingo sparked an idea so I went with it…

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 stitch file. As I mentioned, this started out with a silhouette of a Flamingo – is anyone else hearing “that” Queen song in their head right now?

If you’d like to use the same Flamingo, you can find it here.

The Flamingo was actually in an SVG format so I converted it to PNG in my graphics software and set to work.

I did try a few things along the way and was very happy with the result.

Hatching An Idea

I put this video together to show you my journey through this week’s adventure in machine embroidery. Just hit play and have a good slurp or two of your lovely beverage.
