Hi Doris, I fond some lovely crochet looking doilies on S-Embroidery.com and I'm sure there are other companies too. Good luck, love Chris
I see Jofrog has given this site too, check all the pages out for Crochet. Have a look at the internet under Crochet doily designs in Machine embroidery.
I have tried to increase the size of fsl designs and they turn out distorted. Digitizers of these types of designs recommend you NOT change the size. Hugs. Nan
Hi Doris...when you increase the size of FSL you run the risk of not having the stitches keep their joining properties so that when you rinse the WSS away, the stitches would not connect and could separate from each other...If I were going to try to increase a FSL design, I would stitch it over a layer of something like organza, something very sheer, so that if your stitches did not connect after you increased the size, the doily would still stay together because you would have the sheer organza as a base fabric. Many digitizers will increase their designs for you if you contact them and ask them for a larger/smaller size.
i will try that when i give it go.. thank you Doris
I have increased some of my FSL designs, but when it comes to my advice, I would say no.
P. S. There is never a dumb question
i will try it anyway, can't hurt if i don't do a very big one ,where do you get your designs from? i can't find many that i like... thanks Doris
Depends of what you re looking for. Go to "oregonpatchworks.com" and in the search enter FSL you will see a whole lot. Also "threadsnscissors.com"
Doris I am sorry but I cannot answer your great question which is a very sensible one. I too like enlarging designs and use my PE design to do so, so what softwear do you use. Happy Sunday too, though its after 6pm in the UK
i have a new brother INNOV'IS VE2200 DREAM MAKER XE, i have this machine do the sizing for me i just tell it how much bigger i want and it does it, i will give it a try. on a small one. wish me luck, thanks, Doris
