  1. For this article we using Sierra Embroidery Office 11.41. and our Bixie machine embroidery design Texture Effects The texture we wanted for the dog body was achieved by digitizing Flexible Fill Areas with Variable Density (number 1-3) over Fill Patterns (number PTM - 0168) in low Density (1.3-1.5) with Jagged Edges (10-20%). Just as important was to choose the proper color for the fabric. Since the overall area is stitched with low-density objects, we are allowing the fabric to set the background tone for us. We add a three-dimensional impression digitizing Fill Patterns with Jagged Edges in low Density, in a different color than the fabric. We then digitize Flexible Fills over these Fill Patterns in a color slightly different than the fabric color (just a notch darker) to achieve the texture effects we were looking for. Notice how the Directions or stitching angles of the Flexible Fills were created to flow with the body and face, while the Directions in the Fill Patterns were placed to keep parallel angles along the shapes. Blending Effects On the main menu, make selections that will enhance your object. For our example, we used 1 color and selected a preset blend pattern (highlighted.) The blend style is denoted on the graph to the right of the preset blend we choose. Important Information about Variable Density Under the Basic Styles tab,scroll to view and select the preset blend desired. The color mapping on the Custom Style tab shows the number of thread colors you will use (1 Color Style) as well as the way you want the blend to appear (VD1 006). MPORTANT: Notice the Density Percent on the left side of the graph. It is important that the density be much lower than you would normally use, because it will be multiplied by the number on the left side of the screen. For example, if using a 2.50 lines/mm and the top red line is at 250%, your density will now be 6.25 lines/mm. Likewise, the blue line at the bottom of the graph denotes 50%. Therefore, when stitched at 50%, 2.50 lines/mm will become 1.25 lines/mm. You can also customize the density lines by clicking the CUSTOM tab then placing the mouse on one of the dots and dragging to a new position! Repeat this process to set the properties for both ends of the wrench. INFO: Variable Density is the function that allows you to create Color Blending and Fill Gradation effects.
