Continuing my explorations into the NEW Hatch 3 embroidery digitizing software this week and I have been itching at the bit to have a go with the new cross stitch creation module of the software, so, I did!
PS, there’s a free .EMB stitch file to nab too!
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.
Some Pointless History
A while back, in this blog post if you fancy a read, I wrote about my explorations into Bargello which is a type of pattern-forming hand embroidery style.
In face, here are a few of the bits and bobs that I fiddled about with.
Total fun but sadly not much done since that time about eight years ago. EIGHT YEARS!?
To make things easier for me whilst getting to grips with the cross stitch module of the software and to highlight a couple of the basic tools therein, (posh for, in there), I decided to use the Bargello pattern forming style to make my first machine embroidered cross stitch design and, hey presto!!!
Look At What I Made!
Totes quick to design and reasonably quick to stitch too with only four colours!
Hatching An Idea
If you fancy seeing my journey prodding about not really knowing what I was doing, I put this video together to show you this week’s adventure in machine embroidery. Just hit play and have a good slurp or two of a lovely beverage.
