FSL Oval Daffodil Table Runner

Daffodil Set for a Table Runner is a set of 6 Freestanding Lace Machine Embroidery Designs.
The parts of the Daffodil Set are embroidered in the same way as our 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 upper and bobbin to get two-sided embroidery.
DO NOT embroider several designs in one hoop.

Here are the instructions on how to make this table runner using the Daffodil Set for a Table Runner.
You will need Vilene water soluble stabilizer, embroidery threads, a 12" x 22" piece of linen fabric. The finished size of the table runner is about 9 1/2" x 20".

Step One: Embroider part 1 twice and all the other parts of the set 4 times.
Use 2 layers of Vilene-type water-soluble stabilizer. To get 2-sided embroidery, use the thread of the same color for both the needle and bobbin. 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, 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 Two: Press all parts, except part 6, the flower centers, with steam. On your working table, lay out the designs as shown on the picture below. Thread a needle with the same thread that you used for the embroidery and stitch together the parts in the places marked with red. You will get a lace frame. This has to be done manually.

Step Three: Stretch a piece of 24" x 24" linen on a working table and place the lace over it. Secure in place with pins.

Step Four: 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 (shown in red) to secure the lace.

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.

Now take the flower centers and small beads, thread the needle and manually sew the centers and beads to the flowers on the end designs.
