Let’s continue our learning of the digital cutter, Artistic Edge (12 & 15) . Our fabric is cut and we want to sew the outline; you must first embroider a location outline in straight stitches in order to position the fabric to be applied. Here I offer the same motif in four different versions; I selected the green color to better see the point of the appliqué:
Version # 1 : Automatic border <Stitching <OK <Color <Red <this is the location line
Version # 2 : Automatic border <Serial bourdon <OK <Color <Green
Version # 3 : Automatic border <Stitching <Properties <Surface <Appliqué <Cutting of fabric <Pre-cut <Attachment point E
Version # 4: Automatic border <Stitching <Properties <Setting <Decorative stitches # 47 <Setting width: 2.0mm
Once all the options have been saved, they must be downloaded to our edger via WiFi or via USB key, depending on the model that your embroidery machine accepts.
We always want to go fast and often we make mistakes; do you recognize this one? a little piece of wire sticking out … so it’s tempting to go and cut it without stopping the machine …
Here is the result of our exercise today; there are so many variations of decorative stitches and kinds of finishing around an appliqué in Artistic Digitizer software that it is almost impossible to see the end!
Contact your local authorized dealer to get a demonstration on the Artistic Edge digital cutter, to see their samples, and maybe buy the Edge !!!
