Rose Table Topper

The Rose Linen Set is used for this project.
For the tabletopper you will need a square measuring 36" x 36" of white heavy-weight linen and water-soluble stabilizer (we used 3 layers of Solvy by Sulky). The finished topper will be about 34" x 34".

Step One: With the removable marker draw two diagonals on the piece of fabric measuring 36" x 36". They should intersect in the center. We will use these diagonals to mark the centers the designs. Mark the points 18 1/2" from the center (red Xs on the diagram) and connect them to form a square.

The centers of the first four designs should be about 3" from the center of the topper (shown with black Xs on the diagram). Mark these spots with your removable marker. The next four designs should be 18 1/2" from the center (shown with red Xs on the diagram). Again, mark the spots on the fabric. The last eight designs should be each 8" from a red cross and on the sides of the square (blue Xs on the diagram). Mark these spots as well.

Step Two: Embroider all the designs one by one, starting from the center. When hooping, make sure that the spots that you marked for the designs are located in the center of the hoop (use a grid if needed).

Step Three: When you finish the embroidery, cut away the excess stabilizer. Press the edges only -- don't press the whole thing as the stabilizer has not been dissolved yet! Finish the raw edges to your preference.

Step Four: Place in a bowl with warm water and leave for several hours. For better results, change the water several times. Though Solvy dissolves easily, three layers of it and the density of cross-stitch will slow the process.

Step Five: Hang to air dry. Press with steam.

The table topper is ready. Here are some more close-ups:
