Think outside the embroidery box and get creative with Anita Goodesign! With a few quick edits, you can take a quilt block and transform it into an amazing design for shirts, jeans or just about anything. You can do these edits in ANY software. Keep in mind that I am not changing the size or altering the stitches in any way, I am simply removing some stitches. I am using the China Blue quilt design from this month’s issue. It should be clearly noted that even when you edit an embroidery design like this, the design still belongs to the digitizer – so you can’t sell your edited designs. Have fun!
In this video, I am going to show you how to take a machine embroidery design from the Anita Goodesign All Access May 2019 issue called China blue and turn it into a gorgeous repeating embroidery design for a shirt! If you don’t feel like quilting or creating a quilt block, then you can transform the machine embroidery quilt design and make a design that you can embroider on a shirt! you won’t believe how easy this is, and how beautiful the results are! Hatch Embroidery 2 (the Hatch digitizer level of the embroidery software) makes changing an embroidery design easy and fun. Here are some Hatch embroidery basics in this video and geared towards beginner embroidery and beginner embroidery digitizing. We start off with a quilt block embroidery design from Anita Goodesign. Of course, you can’t embroider that on a shirt, that would be strange, BUT YOU CAN carefully change a few of the embroidery objects and edit the embroidery design. Please make sure that you do not change the size of the embroidery – this is a stitch file, I am only removing elements, not changing any sizes. Anita Goodesign gives you 5 sizes of each design so you can pick the size of the embroidery design that will work best for you. Once you isolate the pretty embroidery design objects, you can start with the embroidery basics with the tools: copy, paste, change the angle and my favorite tool the circle multiple tool. I can’t wait to stitch this out on my Brother Dream Machine 2 embroidery machine. This machine embroidery design is going to look fantastic on my shirt!
