I have a super fun project for you today! We are going to take advantage of the fact that the ScanNCut makes cutting shapes from stiff felt quick and easy.
Here's a peek at some of the details of that gorgeous needle case!
I love to create "technique" videos for the ScanNCut. These are short and sweet videos that share an important tip or how-to about your ScanNCut machine. Today I'm tackling two questions I've gotten from sewers, who are also ScanNCut users. The first is about PES files.
In case you're not familiar, PES files are digital machine embroidery files. They can be used with certain models of the ScanNCut (550, 650, 225 and the new Disney Machine). Watch the video to see how they work with the DX225:
Here is an example of an embroidery design stitched out:
Pretty cool, right? And if you watched the video, you know that each embroidery design actually offers you multiple other choices of designs to play with!
And now, I want to share a bit about these applique designs that are built into the DX225.
One of the very first quilted pieces I ever made was an applique Hawaiian Quilt pillow cover. Entirely hand stitched and made on vacation in Hawaii. This was sometime in my 20s before I owned a sewing machine. These designs make me think of that pillow!
In the video, I break down how these patterns are meant to be used -- blue lines vs. black.
And here is the little teeny tiny quilt I made in the video:
I hope you enjoyed these two tutorials. As always, let me know if you have ScanNCut questions you'd like me to answer!
Thanks for stopping by!
P.S. I am a paid spokesperson for the Brother ScanNCut. It is a machine that I love and use. All projects and opinions are my own.
