Even if you don’t digitize, you can most certainly manipulate designs to get the look you need. All you need are building blocks. What are building blocks? Building blocks are designs – designs that are stashed in Perfect Embroidery Pro.
Let’s take a look at a design from the Monogram catalog.
Click on the Monogram catalog icon and select Mon10683.
Select and Ungroup the design (right mouse click or use the Ungroup icon on the tool bar). Select the branch on the right.
Copy and paste the branch. Move it to the upper right, connecting the bottom scroll to the original branch.
Let’s close the space at the top between the original branch and the new one. Zoom in to get a magnified view. Select the Shape Tool and move the last two black dots to expose the blue squares underneath (the points).
Select and pull the blue squares down to the original branch.
Position the black dots back on top of the blue squares, this sets the direction of the satin stitches.
Hit Enter on the keyboard to extend the satin stitches.
Select the new branch, copy, paste and mirror image the section. Move it to the opposite side.
Voila! A perfectly shaped design for a child’s neckline.
