About This Project

Using the built in tools in Hatch Embroidery, it’s entirely possible to create this project with no artwork!

If you’re new to digitizing, you might be feeling a little intimidated by having to find artwork and then figure out what tools to use to create the look you want. This project will introduce you to a number of tools in Hatch Embroidery to create a design completely from scratch!

This project is geared for a larger hoop (at least a 150mm).

Even if you only have a small machine, I encourage you to walk through the steps just to get familiar with the process. You will notice that in the video below, I use a number of shortcut keys to do things. Learning common short keys can speed your design time and make you more efficient.

Common Shortcut Keys to Memorize
