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 instructions on how to make this doily using the Primrose FSL Border Set
You will need Vilene water soluble stabilizer, embroidery threads, a piece of linen fabric measuring about 32" x 32". The finished size of the doily is about 26" in diameter.
Step One: Embroider each part six times.
Use 2 layers of Vilene-type water-soluble stabilizer. To get neat embroidery, use thread of the same color for 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 steam. On your working table, lay out the designs on the fabric and pin in place. 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 to secure the lace.
Step Three: Using a sharp pair of scissors, cut away the excess fabric from under the lace.
Step Four: 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.
