Mother’s Day is celebrated on various days in many parts of the world but here in Australia we celebrate it on the second Sunday in May.
Mother’s Day is a celebration honoring the lovely mummies in the world, as well as motherhood, maternal bonds, and the influence of mothers in society.
Below is a Mother’s Day Design broken up as an example to help you understand how easy it is to create a design like this yourself.
Digitize using block and create a turning angle over the top of your stems on the artwork.
Fill used: Satin
After you have done one side copy and paste then right click and mirror your design.
Use the arrows on your keypad to keep the alignment rather than moving with the mouse curser.
Digitize using block again and create a turning angle over the top of your Roses on the artwork.
Fill used: Satin
Be creative and use different colours to separate each of the objects to add different tones to your design.
Colour: Green 72 on leaves
Colour: Green 29 on Stem
Colour: Red 28
Add lettering to your design, here I found a hollow true type font.
Font used: Hollow Block
Digitize a closed object in the shape of your letter ensuring you follow the center line of the outline stitch.
Select and right click to object properties and select your fill type.
Fill type used: Pattern Fill Motif4
Don’t forget to reorder the lettering in the colour film so the motif4 patter fill is before the lettering, as shown in the image above.
Over the past few weeks I have been sending out the above Mothers Day Design through a Facebook group for members to enjoy as a mother’s day Sew along. I have been so blessed to receive such beautiful creations in my inbox and was highly impressed with the creativeness of some of the members.
Everyone in the sew along is at different levels of learning embroidery or digitizing. It’s been great to help people experiencing problems with their machines while stitching out the design and I’m thankful to my hubby who is a Bernina accredited technician for being so helpful with advice and knowledge to keep them all sewing.
Here are some of the finished projects from the Mothers Day sew-along.
Others have been downloading the free trial for the V8 and having a go themselves.
SEW MANY CREATIVE IDEAS!
In different parts of the world we refer to our mum’s with different names, Some say mom, mum, mummy, mam, mammy, mother, motha, mommy, momma, ma, madre, mama, and even maw. Here is a sneak peak at the second design for the mothers day sew-along in MUM and MOM.
Get creative with Bernina’s Designer Plus V8 embroidery software and create custom Mother’s Day designs of your very own.
