This set of machine embroidery designs is part of our Celtic collection. It uses the Freestanding Battenberg Lace technique. The designs will fit the Large hoop (5" x 7").
These designs can be embroidered as free-standing ones and then sewn on onto your project, or they can be embroidered as applique.
To make the applique, hoop the fabric with a layer of water-soluble mesh. Start embroidering. The machine will embroider the outline of the design and stop.
Using a pair of sharp scissors, cut away the fabric inside the outline. Be careful not to cut through the mesh.
Return the hoop to the machine and finish the embroidery. Cut away the excess stabilizer, then wash away the remainder.
