Well, I donít think that any of them are really ugly, but out of the four embroidery designs I stitched out, two came out perfect and two not so much.



The first one is Salute Ė Outline Version

Salute is a little bird that a co-worker drew for Memorial Day. He was so cute, that I wanted to embroider him on a Fourth of July zipper pouch. This is the second version of him in outline form as the first one didnít come out right.



The second one is Salute Ė Filled Version

This one needs to be tweaked just a little. The fill didnít meet the outline on the wing. I will embroider it again once I have fixed that small tweak.



The third one is My Rose

My Rose really didnít work right. It was suppose to be a black outline with red filling and green stem, so it would be one solid piece. There are way too many holds in it for me to be happy. I have an idea on how to fix it, so back to the drawing program I go.



The last one is Goddess Pentagram.

This one worked perfectly on the first try! Yeah. I love this one and will be making a tarot bag with this one embroidered on it. It will also be up for sale on my Artfire account soon.

Also, the only embroidery machine I have uses PES. I have no way to check out my designs in other formats. If you have an embroidery machine with a different format and would like to be a beta tester for my designs, please let me know.

With the filled bird I though it was deliberate to give a little highlight to it. Perhaps you could deliberately use incomplete fill to give high or low lights?

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.

If it was intentional, then I would agree, but seeing as I wanted the red to be an outline, it doesn't quite work.  I could rework it (and have a third version) to show high/low lights.  I'll have to think on it.

I actually thought the same thing about highlights, just looking at the pictures, especially of the rose.  The empty spaces look like they really could have been done entirely on purpose, and it looks lovely!  They all do!
