I am always looking for cute decorations for Valentine’s day, maybe it’s just that I love the color red 😊 Custom embroidered felt hearts is a fun way to share the love. This is a quick tutorial using My Design Center on the Brother sewing machine. Photo 1
Supplies: felt, tearaway embroidery stabilizer, water soluble topper, embroidery thread, scissors
- Start by going into MY DESIGN CENTER in the Brother Embroidery Machine. Choose the hoop size you plan on using. I am using the 14” x 9 /2” so I can embroider a lot of hearts at the same time.
Click on the SHAPE. You will find a heart shape on the first page, but if you have the upgrades or THE Dream Machine 2 click on the icon for additional shapes.
On this page you will find a few different heart shapes, choose you favorite.
Alter the size of the heart if you want it larger or smaller. Send the design to embroidery, but before you set the design check the stitches. There are five options. I choose the satin stitch, but there are other fun one’s too.
I decided to widen the ZIGZAG WIDTH. Save the design if you want to quickly access it later and click SET.
Click on ADD and choose a font.
Type in your “Valentine Message” and remember you can make the letters large, medium, or small and there are options for capital and lower case letters. Photo 26
