How to modify a machine embroidery design, cutting out a part to use on its own.
This detail can be used to compose a frieze, a seedling, to recall the main motif…
This technique is also used to split patterns too large for your frame in order to embroider them in several parts
Start your software
Open the pattern of your choice
Take the “scalpel” tool to outline the part of the pattern you want to remove.
Then with the “selection” tool, select the part of the pattern you have outlined, and drag and drop it away.
Still with the “selection” tool, select the rest of the pattern, right click and “cut” or “delete”.
Then with the “selection” tool, select the chosen part of the pattern and drag it to center it, using the markers: a blue cross in the center of the pattern and white circles on the selection rectangle (I underlined them below).
You can also rotate the pattern using the small rounded arrow that appears when you hover over a corner of the selection rectangle.
