    Thank you for this video. I am thrilled to discover the Stick & Tear tear away stabalizer. I don’t like the hoop stretching the necklines of my tshirts and have a difficult time hooping anything with too much thickness!! This will save me some aching fingers!! I definately learned a few new techniques. Wishing for a babylock in my future! Meanwhile, I will enjoy my little Brother 500 embroidery machine. I won it !

    Marcia, Please ask your local Baby Lock dealer. Perhaps you’ll find some ideas/inspiration by watching a 2-part series, titled Embellish Outside the Box. http://www.wpt.org/sewingwithnancy/embroidery.cfm

    Dear Nuncy
    How can I peronalize a baby canvas, all star or sheepskin shoes? Does babylock elegance 2 ables me to do that?

    [...] The cupcake motif is a free download. Since I choose a small knit onsie, the embroidery was too large. Using Baby Lock’s upgrade, I was able to resize the design and reduce the stitch count with the touch of a button. You’ll enjoy watching and learning that step! [...]

    Use the placement stickers that are included in the Children’s Perfect Placement Kit when embroidering with your Ellegante 2. Make sure that shirt is aligned straight in the hoop. Then, use the needle positioning key to move the needle to the center position of the target sticker. Since you have the Perfect Placement Kit, please check the instructions included with the templates. You’ll find more details there.

    The free download fits into a 4 x 4 hoop. If you add the words, consider using a larger size hoop.

    Hi Nancy,
    I love your shows. I look at them all the time and I’ve learned a lot from them. I downloaded the cupcake design, but haven’t sewn it yet. My computer downloaded the design to my document file. I have a baby lock elegante and love it. I’ve had 3 embroidery machines by Baby Lock, serger 8 thread and others. Baby Lock is the best. I plan to sew the cupcake design soon.

    Thanks Nancy for the cupcake download. I Love freebies….I have a Babylock machine…Sophia.. which uses the PES format. This design.. is it done in the 4×4 hoop?

  32. Nancy Says:

    July 12th, 2011 at 1:36 pm

    Your file is likely zipped. You will have to unzip it using a special program in order to get to the files for specific machine types. Win Zip in one with a free trial.

    For those of you who can’t find the download, it’s in the third sentence at the top of this page. It says, “click here to download.”

  34. Rose Says:

    July 12th, 2011 at 1:04 pm

    Great video but if you have the Ellegante 2 instead of the Elissimo, you don’t have that centering device. What’s the best way to center it in the hoop? I have your Placement Kit but haven’t used it enough!
    Also, I’ve looked everywhere! I can’t find the free cupcake download. I would love to have it.
    Thank you.

    Thank you so much for the video. I learned so much from it. I have been embroidering onesies for a bit but have always hooped the garnet. I have the Elegante 2 which does not have the placement sticker. Will the placement kit work with my machine? I am not able to download the design either.

    Thank you for your videos, you put the thoughtful effort into seeing the project from the “sewer’s eyes” and create the instruction in such a logical fashion. It is easy to play the video and stop at points so we can sew right along with you. I really enjoy your videos and learn so much from them.

    Thanks, Nancy. It’s great for all of us to get a quick tutorial to either learn new skills or it to reinforce our current skill set., I always pick up a little something when I watch you in action.
