New Sfumato Stitch Embroidery Tutorial

After two weeks of hard work working, I have finally finished the Learn to Digitize video on Embird’s Sfumato stitch! Whew!  Not that the program itself is that difficult to do (because it isn’t once you get the hang of it) but it was hard to put it all together, from start to finish on how to do things properly and easily.  Once you do things the Sfumato Stitch way, it all comes together!   And I got it all together, and this tutorial takes you from start to finish on how to create your own picture stitch embroidery designs.

This is the picture that I started with:  a simple close up picture from my iPhone of my best buddy, Gallifrey the Weenie Dog, (aka Gally or Frey).  This picture in its original form is high resolution to be able to get in all the details we need  in creating this embroidery design using Sfumato Stitch.


The video tutorial is a beginner Sfumato Stitch video so we will be going over the basics: how to pick a picture, which pictures will work and which pictures will not and why, picture resolutions and some Sfumato rules that you have to do. And, if you stick to the Sfumato Rules, you can have the same results with your pictures! There is nothing that adds more WOW to your design than making a beautiful stitch out that looks exactly like your model!  Its picture embroidery!
