Well, we’re nearly finished! Yesterday, I showed you how to change the outline of a design because as creative beings we like to make things just right! When using the Brother Luminaire 2 Innov-ìs XP2 sewing, quilting and embroidery machine, it was really so easy and painless, wasn’t it? Today’s lesson will be another quick and easy one. Grab yourself a cup of tea and let’s fill in that design with some color.
Select Region Property. Select color (highlighted in blue below); choose slate gray for the color. Select Region Fill (default setting) and leave the fill stitch at default. Select the Paint Can on the Region Properties.
With your touch pen, tap the center button on the mortarboard and the region will fill in with the slate grey color. Select Region Property and change color to deep gold; select OK and fill in the tassel and rope. Repeat this process for the rest of the colors, toggling back and forth until all the regions are filled in. You may have to zoom and pan in on certain areas. Zoom out to fill in another region.
When you’ve finished filling in all the colors, save your work to the Brother Luminaire XP2 machine’s memory.
Select the Home key on the Brother Luminaire XP2 (top right corner of the screen) and select OK. Select My Design Center; select the Recall function and you’ll see all the files you’ve saved. Select the mortarboard outline; select OK. Select Next, and Set, then OK. Save the file to the machine’s memory.
Select the Home function; select OK. Select My Design Center, then select Recall. Select the mortarboard with the applique outline and touch OK. Select Next, Set, and OK. Save the design to your machine’s memory.
Select Home, OK and Recall. Select the mortarboard, complete with filled stitches and outline. Select OK, then Next. Select Set, and OK to save this design to your machine’s memory.
Well, the hard work is done! Sit back in your chair, take a deep breath, and relax. Tomorrow I’ll show you how to convert all the files from the My Design Center to an embroidery file on the Brother Luminaire 2 Innov-ìs XP2.
