Creating a redwork design from an existing design is the EASIEST way to create a design from an existing one. If you have designs with outlines in your embroidery design collection then you can easily double that number. The trick is to find designs with good detailed outlines. In fact, designs over powered by their outlines usually make great redwork designs.

After you open your design, take a look at the Stitch Length bar in Stitches-in-Time. If the outline doesn't have very many vertical spikes in it, then it doesn't have very many jumps and will stitch cleanly.
