Create A Digitizing Plan

Decide which shapes to trace first – look at the image and think of it as layers. Trace the layers in back first. Trace the shapes that should stitch first and leave the details for last.

Digitizing suggestions

The following notes are a few suggestions to help you follow a digitizing plan for this image.

These notes include the order in which I suggest you trace the shapes and the stitch tools that would be the most appropriate for the that shape.

Of course, I encourage you to use your creativity and use whatever stitch and thread colors that you would prefer! That is the benefit of digitizing our own designs. No two will ever be the same!

Digitizing Plan:

Here is a suggested digitizing plan for you to follow:

Happy text

  • use the Text tool and choose a font
  • use the workspace selection box to resize the text
  • drag to the placement location on the egg

Easter Text

  • use the Text tool and choose a font
  • use the workspace selection box to resize the text
  • drag to the placement location on the egg

Stripes

  • use the Fill stitch tool and trace one of the stripes
  • choose a fill pattern in the properties box
  • copy and paste the stripe to create the other stripes
  • on the workspace – select the copy and move it to the new placement location

Egg top

  • use the Fill stitch tool to trace the shape
  • choose a fill pattern in the properties box

Bow

  • use the Fill stitch tool to trace the shape

Digitizing Steps

Follow these 4 digitizing steps for each shape, as a guide, to get you started.

Editing Suggestion

  • if you are feeling ambitious, you could outline each of the shapes after you have finished tracing all of the shapes – using the black thread color
