Lesson 41D, Car Continued
The first time I filled the body form and the fenders, I had a big jump stitch between them. To fix it, I used "Edit/Set/Form/ Zero Point".
I selected a form point on the body form that was near the beginning stitch of the fender by pressing "Y" while holding my cursor near it. There are other ways to select a form point, but I like this one. Don't ask me "y".
When you have the form point selected,press "Edit/Set/Form Zero Point". you may need to do that for the fender also. Once I had both forms filled with bean stitch, I decided the design needed more color. So I made a line form that would cover the fender and copied it. I filled the first copy got a border of Angle fill at spacing 1 mm. Next I used "Edit/Convert to/Satin Ribbon" on the other copy of that line form . Then I edited the Direction lines until I was pleased with the look. See lesson 24 for help with satin ribbon and D lines.
After this picture was made, I moved the satin stitches into place over the underlay. Once again I copied the fender for the back tire, and connected it with a line form filled with line stitches. I used the same method as for the tire.
