apple graphicThere is SO much you can do with our JANOME DIGITIZER MBX  embroidery software. Celine showed options in part 1 for weave fills and part 2 for radial fills in our apple embroidery.

Today we explore a little more with an EMBOSSED FILL PATTERN in our apple embroidery. JANOME DIGITIZER MBX offers a number of different types of fill patterns: weave, satin, embossed, stipple, motif, and more. You can choose the type of fill pattern you want to use before you start the digitizing OR you can edit the fill pattern after the stitches have been digitized by simply selecting the fill area, right clicking to have the Object Properties menu pop up & then choosing many other fill options in the menu.


For our apple, I selected a simple apple image after googling for images for apples. I saved the image and brought it into JANOME DIGITIZER MBX  using the Insert image tab. I resized the image (shown below) to fit comfortably inside our NEW Essential hoop RE18. (see our recent posts during August 2014 for further information about this brand new hoop)


Next step was to manually digitize the apple with a  red weave fill and a black satin border. I added a brown stalk in turning angle satin fill and a green leaf in weave fill with a black triple run border.


The red apple fill was changed to an embossed fill (above) giving a pleasant texture of little circles. A different embossed fill pattern was then selected for the leaf (below).


I checked to see that the stitch out order was correct: red apple & border first, then green leaf & border, finally the stalk.

Lettering can, of course, be added in Janome Digitizer MBX but, for a change, I saved the design without lettering and then added the words: An apple a day with JANOME in the edit screen of the JANOME MC 15000. I used the first grade font – one of my favourites and certainly appropriate for our back-t0-school theme.
