The Making Video:
To keep this design tidy all the colours are blocked together and laid from the lowest to the highest.
- Our machine starts with the yellow thread and lays the main shape of the Rubber Duck design.
- Next the machine switches to the orange thread and stitches the ducks beak.
- The white thread is then chosen and the eye is laid.
- Finally our machine switches to the black colour and embroiders all the finishing details; the outer boarder of the design, the edging round the eye and the wings on the side.
