Recently I have digitized a very simple heart design that will work perfectly in the Super long Hoop it all. The best thing about the Hoop it all is that you do not have to rehoop, just point the machine needle to the marked center of each new design and slide the hoop to the new center. The heart design is about 4″ square and when you stack them on top of each other they make a perfect border. You can eliminate the final outline if you just want the stipple effect. The designs are in PES, JEF and XXX
The hoop it all super long is wonderful for border designs. The hoop is designed for the Singer CE Futura, the XL Singer’s, the Janome, Brother, Baby Lock and Viking. We have an extensive list. Even though this video is marked for the Futura, the techniques are the same for all machines.Â Make sure you also try our Lord’s prayer design in the super long hoop. The designs are saved in PES and FHE. They can be converted in any common software.Â The heart design is digitized as an applique so you can stop the design after the first outline of the heart and add a scrap of fabric to cover. Next sew the applique and then trim up to the fabric. The design was digitized inÂ Compucon Stitch and Sew .designer
My next design is also an applique and is my favorite.Â Embroider your inital in the middle. Add monogram strip or patch to a towel for special treatment. ThisÂ design is 5.50 inches square and will fit a large hoop. I have created a video of how I digitized in the Compucon designer this lovely outline design. The design is also available in the video gallery free. I have saved the .CHE format for the Futura Quartet users as well as XXX, JEF and PES
