Anonymous asked: Wow you got the hang of vectors so fast?! I have a embroidery machine, and I'm having a really tough time with them! D: Would you mind linking to tutorials you used, or explaining how to create an embroidered design?? Thank you so so much :) (That shiba is a cutie btw, I think little guys like him would definitely be popular in your shop!)
i’m kind of using poor-man’s tools until i get the software i want (photoshop and illustrator) but here’s what i did.
first i drew the thing i wanted, and then i vectorized them using this tutorial (in inkscape, which is freeware) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yZ7PbPcfxus
i have no clue how to import the vector into SEU tho so i save it as a rastor image (basically you could to the same thing in photoshop, i’m just using vectors b/c i don’t have photoshop or anything comparable that i like)
then i used these two videos (in this order) for how i digitize/embroiderize designs, whatever you call that ^^
i really don’t know how to do anything fancy, i basically let the program automatically make my things into vectors, and then let it automatically digitize the embroidery design. (i’m totally not using the right vernacular i bet)
but yeah, that’s why i’ve been doing single color, non-overlapping designs so far, because i’m afraid i’ll screw up anything more complicated XD it’s been working so far tho so that’s good.
and thanks! i hope they go over well in my shop because i love making them :>
