Dolphin Bowl, Basket and Doily Set

Our FSL Bowls are embroidered in the same way as ornaments. So please read the General Guidelines first.

Some points to remember from the General Guidelines:
Use Vilene water soluble stabilizer;
Use the same thread for the upper and bobbin to get two-sided embroidery.
DO NOT embroider several designs in one hoop.

These are the instructions on how to assemble the Apple Bowl and Doily Set from our catalog. Along with the embroidery files, you will get the color card, which will help you select the threads and also sort out the many parts of the design.

Apple Bowl and Doily Set

Making the bowl:

Step One: To make the bowl, you'll have to embroider six panels and the hexagon for the bottom. The bowl panel is in the upper left corner; the bowl center is under the panel.
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.

Step Two: Press all parts with steam and sew them together with invisible thread. Read instructions on how to do this in our Guide to Assembling a Freestanding Bowl.

Making the Doily

To make the doily, you'll have to embroider eight doily panels and a circle as the center. The doily panel is in the upper right conner, and the doily center is in the third row. You can stitch either a plain circle or the ABC circle.

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.

The part in the second row on the right can be used as a small doily or as a coaster.

We hope that you liked this set.
