Learning Studio Lesson 5
The Outline, Manual, Connection and Auto-Outline Tools
by Carolyn Keber
In this latest Embird Studio lesson Carolyn takes you through the tools such as the Outline Tool, the Manual Tool, the Connection Tool and the Auto-Outline Tool. In this 82 page lesson Carolyn shows you how to use each of these tools and explains the settings for them and then takes you through a lesson demonstrating how to use them and the options available.
The Outline Tool has quite a few options available – such as converting an outline to a satin stitch quickly, using the outline to create a border pattern or even using the outline tool to make an appliqué object. You will be amazed at all the options you have available when using the Outline Tool.
Carolyn covers the Manual Tool as well and shows you a design where the Manual Stitch has been cleverly used to add lovely accent detail to the design.
Also covered is a lesson using the Connection Tool where Carolyn explains how to use the Connection Tool, where to place the path for the Connection Tool and much more.
As well you will find a lesson using the Outline Tool to create an appliqué design.
The Outline is great for creating appliqué designs quickly and easily as Studio adds the Marking and Tackdown lines automatically. Follow along with Carolyn in this lesson while she takes you through all the options for these Tools.
Also included are lessons which include a demonstration of the Auto-Outline Tool which will be available in the next release of Embird Studio. This is a very clever tool and it will be widely appreciated as it will make creating outlines very simple – at last!
