I have been trying to learn to digitize off an on for 4 years, ever since I got my second hand embroidery machine with the digitizing software, but never really found any resources that would help. Then I found Craftsy and there's a lovely machine embroidery course available. It's a bit slow if you've ever tried to digitize and know a bit about the programs, but I still learned so much through it already, even though I haven't even finished it yet. And here's my first design I would call successful:) I'm so excited I have to share it with the world.

I've been really into hipstery foxes lately, and this image was stuck in my head for a very long time. And now it's finally in stitches!There's still some thing I need to work on (or rather figure out what to do), but for the first time I'm almost completely happy with a design

I love this little fox! It reminds me of one of my favorite tattoo artists work (Sasha Unisex). Very nice!

Thank you all so much!

MissingWillow: This exact one is in a wooden hoop and on the wall in front of me, for motivation:) But I'm probably going to stitch a bigger one in front of a sweatshirt and possibly make a messenger style bag with one on the flap.

AugustBell: Thank you, I had to look her up and now I want a new tattoo:D I've seen a lot of her work on pinterest and such, so she was probably a big part of the inspiration...

This is gorgeous work.  What program are you using to digitize?
