Chapter 10 Converting your design into Embroidery

The finished Wall Hanging for this Module has to be A1 (24 x 34 inches approx) in size so I used Photoshop to enlarge my chosen design and printed it in black on A4 pieces of copy paper and glued them together to the size I wanted then roughly painted it with the colours of the original.  I've put it up on a wall for a few days to look at each time I pass to make sure I've chosen the right one and to decide how I am going to translate it into embroidery.

Funny thing last night as I was trying to get to sleep some ideas came to me so I'll be doing some sample over the next few days.

A4 photocopy the larger version I printed as a draft is a lot lighter
so I could paint onto it with my chosen colours
