3D Christmas Free-Standing Ornaments

Please read the General Guidelines on 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.

Free-standing lace ornaments can be embroidered both using Rayon and Polyester thread, depending on your preference. For the best results you should use the same thread for the upper thread and bobbin thread. These are the instructions for our
3D Christmas Ornament Set.

Step One: Hoop 2 layers of water soluble stabilizer. We recommend fabric-like stabilizers, such as Vilene, which dissolves in warm water very quickly. Film-like water soluble stabilizers, such as Solvy and Madeira's Avalon, are not suitable for the purpose. You can purchase it at https://www.pgsspecialties.com/html/stabilizer.html or in other stores.

DO NOT embroider more than one design in a hoop at at time. Water-soluble stabilizers stretch and if you hoop it incorrectly, or embroider more than one pattern in the hoop, you can easily ruin all your work.

This is one of the ornaments on the stabilizer. Note that the loop is embroidered together with the ornament.

Step Two: Rinse the stabilizer and leave the patterns to air dry. Press with steam.

Step Three: To give the ornament a 3D shape, insert the small "buttons" into the loops.

All other designs in the set are made in the same way. The only exception is the Chinese Lantern, which consists of two parts. They are both embroidered in one hoop.

Then insert the loose ends into the holes in the second design.
