My Very First Digitized Embroidery Design
I stitched the design out as an applique onto gold felt. Then I layered yellow felt on top and then stitched the lettering. It is all sitting on a gold glitter piece of cardstock and this will be used as a card. The recipient could use it as a bookmark. Around the outside of the design, rather than doing a typical applique satin stitch, I used a cross stitch. I waited until the design was completed and then just trimmed the felt close to the stitching. With felt, there is no need to worry about fabric raveling.
Other than first fixing my digitizing mistakes, the next item on my agenda is to figure out how to place the design here as a free download for all of you. I’m open to suggestions if you would like to contact me.
With hugs and blessings,
ps. I’m recovering well from my hernia surgery that I had last Friday. I’m up and around more today. Going through surgery of course is no fun, but it literally forced me to stay off my feet for a few days. I had my laptop right next to me and got to go through the You Can Digitize videos while recuperating. What a fun way to spend my days in bed.
