Multi-Needle Monday: On the Edge Embroidery with the Scanner

High tech inventions make precise embroidery placement so easy. I like to use the scanning feature that is included on my 10 needle embroidery machine to place text on baby items and other accessories.

Step 1

Use soft tear away stabilizer in a 4×4 or 5×7 hoop. Place the item (in this blog a baby lovie is used) with the lower edge of lovie taut in the hoop. Use blue painters tape to hold down the bottom section of the satin edge. Place another piece of painters tape along the top portion of satin to highlight the stitched seam. When the fabric is scanned it can be difficult to view the plush blanket fabric from the satin if they are the same color.lovie1bl

Step 2

Measure the height of the satin edge and use text to fit inside. Scan the hooped lovie.lovie2bl

Step 3

Use the jog keys to position the text exactly where it is planned. Rotate and resize the text if necessary.

Step 4

Select the correct color thread and embroider the text.lovie5bllovie6bllovie9bl
