Changing the outline of a design on the Innov-ìs XP2

I hope you’re getting more comfortable with your Brother Luminaire 2 Innov-ìs XP2 sewing, quilting and embroidery machine. The interface designed for the Brother Sewing/Embroidery machines is so easy to use and to navigate through, don’t you agree? Yesterday, I showed you how to erase and create new lines using the tools available on the Luminaire XP2. That was a lot to learn in one day! Today will be an easy one; let’s change the outline of the design.

Typically, on most professional designs you’ll get two running outlines. These outlines help the design to define the image. In this project, I’ll outline in a triple stitch. Let’s get started.

At bottom of the screen select the All Clean key, a message will pop up – ‘OK to Erase All The Edited Image Data’; select OK.

Select the machine’s memory on the same screen (top right corner under the home key). A window will open, displaying all the files you saved.

Select the completed mortarboard and select OK.

Select the Line Tools key; select the Triple Stitch icon.

Change the color to red and select OK. Select the Paint Can icon at top of screen. With the touch pen, tap on all the outlines on the screen to change the running outline to a triple outline. Be sure all the lines change to red – zoom in if necessary.

I hope you’ll join me tomorrow when I show you how to fill in the parts of a design with color that will then stitch out using embroidery thread. It’ll be a quick process, and then the embroidery fun can begin. Get ready to embroider with the Brother Luminaire 2 Innov-ìs XP2!
