Or are you interested in a quilting alternative? .Last year I did a few posts on creating Easter egg designs. I thought I would replay the video on drafting an applique Easter egg using Electric Quilt.
The new video covers the steps to transfer the design from Electric Quilt to Art and Stitch, Auto Tracing function in Art and Stitch, creating an SVG file (new with the latest version of Art and Stitch), and preparing the design for cutting in Silhouette Cameo.
- Layer 1: n Placement - Running stitch line showing where to place the applique patch.
- Layer 2: Tack down layer - to secure the applique patch on the project with a running stitch line.
- Layer 3: Finish layer - Satin to finish the edges of the applique.
The embroidery machine stops between each layer which allows me to add the fabric or change threads.
Here is the finished design -- turned into a mug rug.
The Art and Stitch file is also included if you wish to play with other variations.
