I have an Accuquilt Go! so I used the butterfly die to cut out the shape I wanted, I scanned the shape and digitized the shape. I then played around with different motif fills and motif stitches to come up with a variety of designs.
Here are a few of the first designs:
I had fun tonight trying out my new Babylock Ellisimo and stitched out 2 of the above designs:
|iPhone didn't take a great picture|
The first one I used a fabric applique and discovered that I need to go back and fix a few places in the digitizing of the Accuquilt digitized shape as in a few places the applique didn't fit exactly in place. The satin stitching outline covered this up but I would like to go back and make it fit better.
I also didn't like where I placed the body and antennas and also didn't like how that section stitched out. Need to go back to the drawing board on how I will do that part.
In the second design I forgot to add the fabric after the first stitch out but I did like how it turned out.
Still lot of more work to be done to make these perfect but I did have a wonderful time designing and stitching these out tonight.
