OUCH! Here is that "BAD" example of my turtle, the very first design I ever 'digitized'! Didn't have a clue about what I was doing! Just look at the puckers and the outline that is heading to Nebraska!!g The reindeer is adorable and is an example of changing out original fill areas and replacing them with interesting Embossed (or Fancy) fill types. The daisy's were created by removing one daisy from a complex design and reshaping and rotating them into different positions. I painted my plain white fabric using fabric pens to create the grass and sky. As you recall in my lesson, I also digitized the stems of the daisies and changed stitching order so they would stitch first. Creativity is what is so joyful about the embroidery process!
