Digitizing Chenille Objects

Friday, June 5, 2009
You can digitize chenille objects using a number of methods. You can digitize chenille manually by creating multiple objects, one for the fill and one or two for the border. Input A, B and C with Coil or Straight fill can be used for the fill and run borders are added separately either before or after the fill. Borders can also be added automatically using Complex Fill with Compound Chenille.

You can use both Moss and Chain stitch for outlines or fills. Moss can be stitched using different needle heights: lower for run around and higher for fill. In conjunction with Chain stitches, the design builds up in height from the edges to the middle. The Moss and Chain tools set the fill only. Offset runs can be individually set to Moss or Chain in the Compound Chenille
