In this class, we are going to go over a few different ways to digitize an embossed design for towels. I explain how the effect is created, and how embossing works. We start off with a simple square design – it may be simple, but it looks impressive! We move on to creating our own fancy shape for the next embossing design, using only our grid for reference – yes, I make a few mistakes, and I show you how to correct them so your design is perfect! We change the type of fill, play around with motif stitches and create the second design. For the third design, we use a circle shape and I show you a few ways to make the design even better!
