FSL Daisy Doily

The FSL Daisy Border is a freestanding lace machine ermbroidery design which we used to make the doilies on this page.
The design is embroidered in the same way as our FSL 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 needle and bobbin to get two-sided embroidery.
DO NOT embroider several designs in one hoop.

You will need Vilene water soluble stabilizer, embroidery thread and a 16" x 16" piece of linen fabric. The finished size of the doily is about 18" in diameter.

Step One: If you want to make a doily with the embroidered insert, pre-wash the fabric. Embroider the fabric insert, and set it aside for a while. Here, we used the cutwork design Sunflower for mega hoop as our insert.

Step Two: Embroider the FSL daisy panel eight times.
Use 2 layers of Vilene-type water-soluble stabilizer. To get 2-sided embroidery, use thread of the same color for both the needle and bobbin. Rinse the stabilizer and leave to air dry. Then press with steam.

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, it's 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 Three: Place the panels on a flat surface to make a circle. Thread a needle with the thread with which you made the embroidery and stitch together the panels in the places marked with red. This has to be done manually.

Step Four: Place the lace frame over the fabric. Secure in place with pins. Thread your machine with the threads you used for embroidery and, using short but NOT dense zigzag, stitch along the inner edge of the lace frame.

Step Five: Using a sharp pair of scissors, cut away the excess fabric from under the lace.

Return to your machine and using a very dense zigzag, of the same width as the lace edge, stitch along the edge of the fabric. Continue to use the same thread with which you embroidered the design.
