One design – many possibilities

Some designs, especially floral designs,  lend themselves particularly well to some manipulation. Often you can pull the pieces apart, duplicate them and rearrange them. Take one of my latest designs, C-25 Floral branch, for example:

C-25-1This design basically consists of three parts: the main flower and two buds, while even the leaves can be rearranged:

C-24-2   C-25-4            C-25-3

These smaller designs could certainly be used by themselves, but another possibility is to make a copy of the larger bud and to arrange the two together with the small bud:


Or take 4 copies of the larger bud and make  a block design:


Or perhaps a wreath better suits your needs.


And last but not least how about a nice big design:

C-25-8These are just a few examples of what can be done with a design if you cut a few extra copies. And cutting fabric is a snap on the Silhouette Cameo. Designs can be even further manipulated in the Silhouette Cameo, but I keep that for next time. I do want to add, however, that all the designs can be easily reduced or enlarged without any problem.

My designs are available on my website, and include the following formats:

SVG – recognized by the Silhouette and other cutting machines
Studio3 – the native Silhouette format
WMF – a vector file that can be imported by Bernina Designer Plus and Creative Drawing and some other embroidery software programs
PDF – that can also be used by Bernina Designer Plus for embroidery digitizing and possibly also by other embroidery programs.

If you know which other embroidery program can use WMF or PDF files for digitizing please let me know and I’ll add them to the list.
