Paper Doll Mary

The designs from the Doll Mary Set are free standing. We advise that you embroider them on water soluble stabilizer. The best choice is water soluble mesh -- fabric-like non-woven water soluble stabilizer, such as Vilene. Please fist read the General Guidelines on Embroidering our FSL designs.

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.

To embroider the doll, use 2 layers of the water-soluble stabilizer and a layer of organza. Rinse away the stabilizer and leave to air dry. Cut away the excess organza. Press with steam.

The dresses are made in the same way. Sew a matching narrow satin ribbon to the back of each dress. To put a dress on the doll, just tie the ribbon ends across the back of the doll.

There is also another way to attach a ribbon to the dress -- make the ribbon part of the embroidery. Start embroidering a dress. After several colors, when you see the waist line, take the hoop out of the machine, and place a matching narrow ribbon along the waist line. Pin the ribbon ends to the stabilizer.
