SophieSew Tutorial 2 by adamlhumphreys SophieSew Tutorial 2 by adamlhumphreys
View here! [link]
First tutorial here: [link]

My second SophieSew tutorial. This will probably be it for a while. Not sure what else to cover. People will have to experiment on their own regardless but hopefully this is a good jump-start. :)

Now you can design and embroidery on whatever you like, blankets, plushies, pillows, shirts, pants, …undergarments? :iconajawkwardsmileplz: "Ehh, maybe not."

Also, this is not a “how to make Rarity’s eye” tutorial. I don’t really do “how to make _____” tutorials, I just want to get people to know the software better and what to expect when using certain tools.

Bring on version 2! :w00t:

Thank you for this wonderful tutorial but I could use some serious help!  I have the eye I want to embroider sized correctly in my art program but when I upload it to SophieSew so I can work on top of it, it ends up being 3x larger than the hoop!  How do you get your eyes and cutie marks to come out the right size?

Well, it's sad that SophieSew doesn't seem to respect dpi, but you can right click and go to properties on the image edge in SophieSew and change the size of your image by whole percentages. :)

How does embroidery work? I'm trying to figure out as much as I can so I can make my own plushie.

Well, lots of threadwork/stitches laid together to make an image of thread, unless you mean the machine, which is where things get complicated. ^^; But don't worry too much about the technical aspect, just know how to correct issues as they arise until you learn the idiosyncrasies of both the machine and the software. :)

I don't have a machine yet so for now I'll make the eyes out of felt or something. :P
