S from Berry font on my table mat.

Design from Cute embroidery. My frame. I have used the Auto repeat function in my software to create this table mat and I love it.

Hello Lidia,
This is another great achievement due to a duplicate of the same pattern. It is very motivating to play with the design as well. Very nice, thank you for sharing.

No-one would guess this was a letter. I love the effect. The small circle of berries is a lovely addition. Great work!

I need to come visit with you Lidia and pick your creative brain. :-)
I am stumped when it comes to figuring out ways to put things together and you always do such a fabulous job.
You are a great inspiration to me and I should imagine to others too.
I do not have software, but thanks to a lovely teacher, I know that I can do this with my bare basic embroidery machine too. Just lots of re-hooping. The frame would have to be done on my sewing machine as my biggest hoop is only 5" x 7".
thank you for the exercise I have had this morning in working out how to do this on my machine.

Lots of re-hooping is time consuming and I wouldn't do it. I prefer (and enjoy) to spend time creating layouts in my software so it becomes easy to embroider every project.
Thanks for your comment.

Another beautiful table mat. What software do you use that has the auto repeat function.

Husqvarna/Pfaff (3D through 6D) has a function called Encore; Embird has Auto-repeat, and other software suites offer the same function called by different names.
You usually have a choice of the form the repeats will take, circle, line, rectangle, and the number of repeats, 3 to 12 or more. When using the linear repeats you can in some software add placement marks - useful when you want to create long borders.

Hi Jerri,
I use Embird Basic for combining the designs and use their Auto-Repeat function which is a great feature.
Thanks for your comment.

Fabulous use of that letter. I like how you put the berries in the middle. I always think mats look better with something centered on them. And, of course, I am consumbed with envy of your ability to make such perfect borders.

I agree with you that the circle in the middle improves the total look of the mat. To get well-made borders, just follow the instructions given for the applique. Thanks for your comment, Penny.
Hugs, Lidia
P.S.: Regarding your question about the berries: In my software, I have separated the two colours that stitch the berries out, then I have selected two of them and used the Auto Repeat function to repeat them six times in a circle and placed them in the middle. All done in my software.

Really cute. Would love to give this a try but have questions. What fabric is this stitched on? Did you sew anything on the back to hide the stitched? Thanks. Sandy

Hi Sandy, welcome to Cute Embroidery. I have embroidered this table mat onto strong felt with soft cut-away underneath it, and both have been placed (not hooped) on top of the hooped water-soluble Vilene. I didn't sew anything on the back. Thanks for your comment. Hugs, Lidia
