Did you have fun last week?
I know I did…. and it really made me think about TRACING images.
It’s not something I’ve done a lot of… I was thinking of something to trace, I’ve read somewhere how someone traced a coloring page from a coloring book, so I figured I’d google it and I was thinking of Hello kitty
so I found this page
and downloaded the hello kitty here
I started a new block with easy draw +patchdraw
Under the tracing tab I imported the image
I used the free motion draw tool and drew around the head and then the shape button/tool to tweak it
I then added nodes and tweaked some more
Then free motion drew around the arm
once you click the mouse button it smooths it out
again tweaking it and adding more nodes
I made it a little bit bigger than the lines because as an applique it will be BEHIND the body and head
I copied and pasted another arm and flipped it for the other side
I did the same with the sleeves
I decided to do the whole body as one piece
Now on to the shirt
I often go back and forth to the color tab too to check how it looks and change what needs to be forward or backward
here the head need to go forward and maybe tweak the ear
Here I tried to color it ( I know Hello kitty’s shirt is not purple usually)
Then I worked on the bow
and now the face
Here’s the block all done and colored
Wouldn’t this be a cute pillow?
Now I left the whiskers and the bottom by the feet, I feel that once you applique it you’d add those lines of in the quilting.
If you ever traced an image in EQ, I/we'd love to see it.
