custom teacher gifts Customize Your Embroidery decorative pillow shams

Have you ever wanted to tweak an embroidery design without the hassle and expense of software packages? One of my favorite features on the new BERNINA 790 PLUS and 880 PLUS (as well as upgrades!) will help you do just that! The new group and ungroup functions will help you edit, adjust, and customize existing embroidery designs so you can stitch them out exactly how you want them. I’ve used them to make small changes to an existing Alison Glass design for a pillow.

Save your embroidery design to a USB drive in the preferred format. Locate the drive on your machine and open up the design.

Fun fact: BERNINA machines historically have only been able to run .exp files. While this is still the preferred format, the B 790 Plus, the B 880 Pluscustom teacher gifts, and upgraded machines will now be able to read a wide variety of formats!

Select the Info icon, scroll down to the new “Group/Ungroup” function, and select it.

Select the Ungroup button. Note: since the design opens up already “flattened”, ungrouping is the only option available here.

You’ll see your design split into separate layers by color.

Locate the layer that contains the design element you want to change. For our pillow, I want to add more of these little six-point stars so I need to head up to layer 11. Ungroup this layer again to break out each of the elements included in the layer.

The star I want to duplicate is here at layer 17. Select this layer.

I want to add four of these six-point stars to my design. To do this, go back to the main Info screen and hit the Duplicate button four times.

Select each of these stars individually and drag them into the spot you’d like them in the design.

For ease of stitching out, regroup these newly added motifs back to how they were originally layered in the file. To do this, head back to the Info screen, and select the Group/Ungroup button again.

The Group button will group your layers working from the bottom up. Select the lowest layer of these new motifs and continue clicking the Group button until they are all in one group.

Now that these new motifs are in their own group, we want to join them back up with the other objects that are the same color in this embroidery file. Head back to the main Info screen and select the Rearrange icon.

Click the down arrow to move this layer down until you reach the other elements of the same color. To keep regrouping simple, I’m going to put this new layer at the bottom of the blue layers.

Now we’ll group all the blue layers back together. Again, heading back to the Info screen, select the Group/Ungroup icon.

Still with this layer 11 selected, continue to click the Group button until all the blues are in one layer together. Don’t worry if you go too far—you can always hit the Undo button!

Move down to the bottom layer of the file and repeat this process to regroup the entire design back together.

Use spray adhesive to apply Ultra Clean &; Tear stabilizer to the back of your fabric, hoop it up, and stitch it out on the machine. I’ve finished my design into a simple throw pillow but tote bags, wall hangings, and even quilt blocks are always possibilities!

It’s time of the year to revamp your home. Keep the furniture, but redo the décor to give your home a new look and feel. Yes, that’s the beauty of the festival season. It urges you to refurbish the house, buy something new, retain but rebuild the old. And when it comes to infusing new elements, décor and furnishings are on everyone’s mind. These are affordable, quick changes, which can instantly give a new look and feel rather a festive look and feel of your home.

I adore staples, but I can become slightly bored with them, too. You can bring a wreath to life and give it a completely different look by adding something organic. It’s a quick, easy and beautiful way to update a basic.

About 2.5 years ago we adopted a trio of adorable fluffy kittens and our lives, and home furnishings, have never been the same. Yes we have tried to curb scratching with tin foil and lemon spray, no we wont have their claws removed. Got anything else? Please? I have finally reached my limit with a couch that sits in our bay window overlooking our pretty backyard. The arms are scratched down to the foam. It’s an eye sore and it has to go, but as a relatively sane person I can’t bare to give the kitties an expensive new scratch toy.
