Embroidering and Assembling a Free Standing Lace Bowl

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.

Assembling a FSL Bowl

As an example, we used the Acorn Bowl.

Step One: Hoop two layers of water soluble Vilene stabilizer. Embroider the designs one by one. To get two-sided embroidery, use the same thread for the upper thread and the bobbin thread. Dissolve the stabilizer, and leave to air dry.

If you work with organza bowls, such as our Organza Bowl and Doily Set, hoop one layer of organza and 2 layers of water soluble Vilene stabilizer. Embroider the designs one by one. Cut away the excess organza and stabilizer. Dissolve the stabilizer and leave to air dry.

Step Two: Start assembling the bowl. Take two panels and press them with steam. Align the side edges and zigzag them together. Use monofilament invisible thread.

Step Three: Take the third panel, press it with steam and zigzag it to the first two panels. Connect all 8 panels in this way. Do not stitch the last seam to connect the first and the eighth panels.
