Final Cutwork Designs Using Circular Array

In this tutorial Lodiawill show you how the Array Functions in the Cutwork Program works. This is a very nice way of creating unique patterns in your designs. You can create different orientations or mirrored copies in the array. In this tutorial we will be looking at a few options for the Circular Array. The options for the Rectangular Array will be covered in a separate tutorial.

Arrays are clones of the whole design or a selected portion. You can select one or more objects and by multiplying them, you can create unique formations. You can apply more than one array function in the same design with different objects. While we apply the array, we have the option to select cloning the object. This means that if we need to make changes to the object, we can select the original object, reshape or change and then whatever you have done to the original object will be applied to all the other objects in the array.

Before applying the array, you can customize the number of copies, the orientation of the objects or mirror some of the clones.

Cutwork Tool Applique Tutorial

by Lodia Da Silva


Final Design

In this tutorial you will take an existing appliqu design and convert it to an appliqu design where the appliqu fabric will be cut with the cutwork tool. You will also learn how to edit the shapes in case they have not been followed exactly.

Several layers of the same fabric and shapes can be cut at the same time. This is a real time saver because you do not have to cut each shape as you need it as for the conventional hand appliqu designs. You can cut all the fabric in advance and simply place them in position as you embroider the different appliqu shapes. The original appliqu shapes will be used to create the cutwork appliqu.
