video design custom stitch

One of the benefits of sewing is the capability of adding your own unique style to every project. This tutorial will show you how to expand on that creativity by designing your own custom stitch. The stitch options include a single stitch, triple stitch, or a combination of both.

Sewing Machine: DreamWeaver® XE VM6200D

Feature: My Custom Stitch™

Optional Materials: SA507 Grid Sheet for My Custom Stitch™ (A few come with machines equipped with My Custom Stitch™) available at Authorized Brother Dealers and select online retailers.

There are multiple ways to design your stitch, including touching the screen and selecting a point. With the repeat function, the new design can be stitched over and over, and you can even save the stitch design in the machine!

I have used the My Custom Stitch™ feature to create my own look when top stitching on jeans and embellishing fabrics for home dec and accessories. Be sure to share photos of your custom stitches on Facebook and Instagram, tagging us at #StitchingSewcial #AngelaWolf and @BrotherSews.
