The making video:
To keep this design tidy all the colours are blocked together and laid from the lowest to the highest.
- Our embroidery machine starts with the yellow thread and lays the main triangular shape of the pizza slice design.
- The machine then switches to the light brown thread and lays the crust on the outside of the slice.
- Next the thread is switched to the red and the pepperoni pieces are laid.
- The green thread is then chosen and the vegetable toppings are laid.
- Finally the black thread is selected and laid on the edges and outlines of the Pizza Slice patch.
