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. Leave the details for last.
Here are some suggestions for this image:
- trace the green leaves first
- trace the brown leaves
- trace the red flower petals
- add the gold flower petals
- add the yellow flower center
Determine the stitch tools for each shape:
Consider what stitch to use for tracing each shape. Here are some suggestions for this image:
- leaves – fill stitch tool
- veins – run stitch (bean stitch)
- stems – steil satin stitch
- flower petals – fill stitch
Follow these 5 digitizing steps for each shape, as a guide, to get you started.
