4. Music sign ‘sharp’: ‘Lift your friends up with a smile’ with free download

Here’s the last of the set of 4 cards, based on music signs. After the ‘dal segno’, the ‘rest’ and the coda, we have the ‘sharp’.

The sharp tells the musicians to play or sing the note half a tone higher than it should usually be done.

Higher? Well let’s think of people’s emotions with ups and downs.

Do you know that smiles are contagious? When you meet happy, enthusiast persons, it lifts up your own emotions. Laughters brighten up the world. Be the friendly person who cheers up a company. Little quirks and happy faces expel the complaints of the day.

This is the card based on the sharp symbol:

You will need the free embroidery file (in EXP or PES): Lift your friends up with your smile

It is made in steps, marked with the red numbers. The blue lines with letters are the signs where you are supposed to take an action.

Watch in the blog post on the dal segno sign for the complete description.

You can use the red colour embroidery thread for step 1, 2 and 3. The colour changes in the file make the machine stop and give you the opportunity to take away the hoop from the embroidery unit.

In step A you should place the folded fabric on the stabilizer.

In step B you put a layer of extra stabilizer under your project, to prevent from shining through.

In step C you iron the layer of Decovil under your card.

Step D is meant to make the hole with a punch tool and cut away all excess of fabric around the embroidered rectangles. Don’t forget to change bobbin thread to the colour of the upper thread.

And now,  you’re finished. So go out and cheer your friends up!
