You can also skip the hand design .And just make a pattern from scratch on the software. Don’t worry about your artistic skills! You’ll be surprised how creative you can get .With a pencil and some watercolors or crayons. You could also take a pic of something .Like a picture of your cat .And upload it to the software. The software will do its magic .And turn your picture into a custom embroidery pattern.

In the 2nd step, you print out your design. And bring it to life on your choice modern digital embroidery sewing machine.

STEP BY STEP TO MAKE YOUR OWN EMBROIDERY PATTERN:

 

STEP 1- DESIGN INSPIRATION

When you make from a picture (like your pet photos). The 1ST step in making embroidery patterns is get some inspirations! You will find it easier to think .And come up with a practical pattern .If you’ve an idea of what a good pattern looks like. For this, there’re many EMBROIDERY PATTERNS on the internet.

Take time to find patterns that match your project. And save them on your PC .Or print them out.

 

STEP 2- SKETCHING OR DOODLING:

When you’re done with the 1st step. It’s now time to get to work. Grab a pencil and some colors .And draw your patterns. You can also make doodles .And enhance them as you go .If you’re not into drawing. Feel free to draw many designs. And choose the one that looks the best at the end. Add all the colors you want on your pattern at this step .As they’ll be REQUIRED when you get to the software part.

 

STEP 3- CUTTING YOUR DESIGNS

To make it easier and faster later. It’s best if you grab a PAIR OF SCISSORS .And cut out your paper design. Leave the least amount of bleed at the edges. This would save your time . Then cut the embroidery pattern out .And put it aside.

 

STEP 4- SCAN THE DESIGN

Grab the cutout patterns .And put them into the scanner. YOU should use the highest image quality .When capturing the design. So, that every detail, such as colors and lines, are rightly captured. You can also use a SCANNING APP on your smart phone. Such as CAMSCANNER .If you don’t have access to a real scanner. Save the scanned image into a folder you can trace later.

 

STEP 5-TURN YOUR EMBROIDERY INTO DIGITAL FORMAT FOR SEWING:

 

Open your already installed embroidery or vector design software. And upload the saved images for conversion. CUSTOM EMBROIDERY SOFTWARE makes it easier using a wizard menu .To move from uploaded sketches to a completed embroidery pattern ready to be use.

You can now go ahead .And save it in the format. That is accepted by your embroidery sewing machine.
