This set of machine embroidery designs is part of our Freestanding Lace Bowls collection. It uses the Freestanding Lace technique. The designs will fit the Large hoop (5" x 7").
To make the bowl, you'll have to embroider six panels and the larger hexagon for the bottom. The bowl panel is in the upper right corner; the bowl center is under the panels in the second row. Use 2 layers of Vilene-type water-soluble stabilizer and use the same thread for both the needle and bobbin to get 2-sided embroidery. Rinse the stabilizer and leave to air dry.
Press all parts with steam. Continue as you would with any other freestanding bowl. Read instructions in our Guide to Assembling a Freestanding Bowl.

To make the doily, you'll have to embroider six doily panels and the smaller hexagon as the center. The doily panel is in the upper left conner, and the doily center is in the third row.
Use 2 layers of Vilene-type water-soluble stabilizer. For the doily, you can use white bobbin thread as it doesn't have to be two-sided.
Rinse the stabilizer and leave to air dry. Press with steam and stitch the parts together using invisible thread.
