Styles of Corners

Begins at 48:00 of the video.  Duration 8 minutes.  

New in  3401 is the corner style called open corners and in this segment Trevor reviews all of the choices we have for a style of stitching around a corner.  If you choose auto then the software will choose the style of corner based on the degree of the angle between the lines.   FTCU-W03-11.035.jpeg

Cutwork Heart

Begins at 56:00 of the video.  Duration 10 minutes.  

The new cutwork tool makes it super easy to create designs that have a removed area that is connected with the satin columns “bridges” sewing across the removed area.  You need to hoop the material with wet n gone. FTCU-W03-11.036FTCU-W03-11.037FTCU-W03-11.038FTCU-W03-11.039FTCU-W03-11.040

Cutwork Butterfly

Begins at 1:06:15 of the video.  Duration 22 minutes.  

Trevor creates the heart and butterfly designs and in making the stitch outs learns how to adjust the amount of overlap for the stitches.  If the edge is too close some of the cut fabric may not be covered by the satin border.  FTCU-W03-11.041FTCU-W03-11.042FTCU-W03-11.043FTCU-W03-11.044FTCU-W03-11.045

Poinsettia – Shadow Work
