When I was washing baby clothes, I found a few plain white onesies and then got the idea of embroidering something on one of them. Like our church’s (Calvary Chapel) Dove.
So I found the file online and saved it.
In EQ Stitch you have to “work on stitching” and then click the trace image tab
And on the left there’s an import image button that you click on.
Once you find your file and import it, just click on the background once and it will pop it in there :)
Zoom in and start adding lines at the point, don’t worry about curves yet!
Then select the shape tool and click the line and near the top you can then choose to convert to curve!
It then adds little points that you can drag down and match the curve like this.
sometimes you may need to add nodes
outside is done
You can click the Stitch tab and see what it looks like!
I might not even do the inside, as I can use the width of the outline stitch to look like that thick line.
I chose to resize it, as it needs to be small on a onesie.
I copied the dove and made a new embroidery as applique
Then added a pink fabric.
You can preview the stitching and when satisfied with it export the stitching file
You select your file type/ ext. and name it then save.
Then add it to your embroidery machine – I have a thumb drive
and try it out!
I will probably add “Calvary Chapel Baby” on my machine when I embroider it.
