Video: Let’s Get “Crazy” with Fabric Part 2

March 28, 2019By Cindy HoganEmbroidery, Tutorial, Video 2 Comments Opinion by Paid Consultant

This is the second post for creating you own fabric (Here is Part 1). The first walked you through creating two of the fabrics that I used in the project. This video will walk you through the last two fabrics. The first fabric uses a bit of a different technique. The last part of the video is a review of the border technique. At the end of the video you will have four beautiful pieces of fabric to use.

Materials needed to embroider:

  • Fabrics that read as a solid
  • Tearaway stabilizer
  • Coordinating embroidery threads
  • Brother Embroidery machine with Border function. These videos are completed with the Brother Luminaire XP1, but the operation is similar on the machines that have the Border function.
  • 2500 Free design collection

I used specific designs in my fabrics, but I encourage you to find others that you can use for creating fabric. Have fun. I can’t wait to see your projects. I haven’t decided if mine is going to be a pillow wrap or a table runner. Maybe I will use it as both!

Create something fun today.



  • Hi Lisa,
    Yes the Dream Weaver XE has the border function available in Embroidery Edit. The icon will look the same as the one on the Luminaire in the video. You will not have the group and ungroup function that I mention in the first part of this video, but you can definitely have fun with the rest of the project!
