This is one of my first digitizing projects that I think came out pretty good. I made the illustration in adobe illustrator (inspired by a "milk and cookies" google search) and then digitized it with PE design which I'm really really slowly learning how to use (it came with the machine:)). I still have trouble understanding different kinds of stitches and settings for the stitches (which you can obviously see on the hearts:)).

I would love any kind of feedback and suggestions on how to make it better. If anyone wants to try and stitch it out themselves (and give me some feedback) I would love (LOVE LOVE) to send you the file ( i can also change the word "Mleko" on the carton to the English word milk, if you want:)). But any comet would help! Thank you!

I can't help you with your machine, but your design is delicious.

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

i thought that this was a hand embroidery.. i would maybe suggest you try out a different program or try finding some good tutorials on how to use the one you have. i'm not familiar with the one you said came with your machine, but i'd imagine it's not the best option out there.. although, maybe you're not aiming to do all your embroideries yourself in which case it's fine. my Husqvarna Viking embroidery software damn near drove me crazy, but now that i've had a day lesson from a guy who sells Wilcom and Pulse programs (which run up to 15 000 euros.. YUP.) i learned the best techniques and so on. i can recommend Stitch Era embroidery program by Sierra Software, but not everyone understands how it works, you need a bit of an understanding with embroideries before diving into that one.

what you need is to JUST DO IT! Smiley you learn by making stuff and making mistakes and thinking how it would look better and then finding out if you can manipulate the stitches in that way.  i've found it most helpful to buy Urban Threads embroideries (www.urbanthreads.com) and just sit at the machine as it embroideres and just trying to think "now, why does it stitch out like that?". for example, sometimes it can look very weird starting up, when the machine does a bit from that side, then moves to the other side, but usually it comes together in the end and you realize that all those connector lines in between are covered with stitching. that's just a "for example". Smiley but to make truly awesome embroidery, you need some lessons, either with a real live human or on the internet and then also by watching things stitch out, things that are REALLY well made (i.e. the UT desings Wink and then taking note of that. here's some AWFUL stuff that i've made four years back, when i was losing my mind with my embroideries and really needed something else http://susitaika.com/amarok/how_to.html there you can see how the Husqvarna Viking program worked for me. for comparison, you can see the things that i've created since with Stitch Era right here on this part of the forum Smiley
