Are you feeling lucky? You don’t have to be Irish to stitch these designs, but if you do, you could be a winner! Read all the way through to the bottom of this post for details on how you could win a copy of Embrilliance’s beautiful Romance Collection when you share your embroidered project with us!
Before we get to the challenge, let’s tell you about this lovely design library created by the host of Afterhours with SewBubbles, Lisa Shaw of Bubbles’ Menagerie! She used a variety of stitches in StitchArtist to create these delightful, textured designs. From light, sketch-styled fills, to intricately interlaced satin stitches, Lisa made excellent use of StitchArtist’s tools to make these shamrocks pop!
This design library installs like any other BX installer you’ve used, but we created a PDF file that you can download with installation instructions. If you haven’t yet installed a BX font or library, see how to use these wonderful installers here! How to Install a BX – Video
You may be familiar with BX files from the wealth of fonts available from top digitizers; the difference with BX libraries is that instead of showing up in the font pane of the Lettering tool, Library designs are accessed via the Merge Library Design button on your button bar. Once you’ve started new design page and click the Merge Library Design button, the Library window will appear. To access the designs once you’ve opened the Library, select the Shared: Project Blog category in the Catalog drop-down menu in the upper left and click on the ‘Lucky Stitches’ icon in the left hand panel.
Once you see the designs in the right hand pane, click to select the design you would like to use and click the OK button above the panel. The design will show up in the center of your hoop in your current design page. Select multiple designs to combine into a unique layout, add lettering or a monogram, or add your own designs to create something truly unique. There are so many possibilities that we’re sure you’ll create something great!
This library can be installed in our Embrilliance platform and used in any of the Embrilliance Platform programs. If you aren’t already an Embrilliance owner, we provide a free method to use our software called Express Mode that will not only allow you to use any of the wonderful free designs found in our project blog, but also enables you to install and create basic text treatments with fonts distributed in our popular .BX format produced by many embroidery design creators.
