Christmas Bowl, Doily, Napkin Holder and Bottle Apron Set

Please read the General Guidelineson Embroidering our FSL designs 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 instructions on how to assemble the Christmas Season FSL Table 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.

Step One: To make the bowl, you'll have to embroider six bowl panels and the hexagon for the bottom. The bowl panels are number 1 to 3 in the picture; embroider 2 copies of each; the bowl bottom is part #4 in the the picture.

Use 2 layers of Vilene-type water-soluble stabilizer; use the same thread for both the needle and bobbin to get 2-sided embroidery. The embelishments on the panels are in cross-stitch technique - trim all jumps. Rinse the stabilizer and leave to air dry.

Impotant Note: It's very important to use as small a hoop as possible. E.g. if your design is for a small hoop, use the small hoop, not the large one; if your design is for a large hoop, use large, not mega. Do not try to embroider several freestanding lace designs in one hoop. This is because all water-soluble stabilizers stretch, and in a bigger hoop, they're going to stretch more. This can lead to the design falling apart after the stabilizer is dissolved. It's always better to embroider one part at a time.

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 Doilies

With the designs from this set, it's possible to make several different doilies.

Parts #5, #6 and #7 are doily parts. To make the first doily, you'll have to embroider the part #5 once, and parts #6 and #7 from the third row twice each. Use Vilene-type water-soluble stabilizer. For the doily, you can use white bobbin thread as it doesn't have to be two-sided.

Press all parts with steam and stitch them together using invisible thread.

You can also use the lace corners to make a fabric doily, table topper or even a table cloth. For our doily we embroidered each lace corner 4 times and attached them to the fabric with a zigzag stitch.

To make this bottle decoration, you'll have to embroider four parts. Use Vilene-type water-soluble stabilizer. For the bottle vest, you can use white bobbin thread as it doesn't have to be two-sided.

Press with steam and stitch together the parts11 and 13, and then, 12 and 14 using invisible thread.

Stitch together the top edges of parts 11 and 12.
