Shamrock FSL Doily

The Shamrock FSL Doily is a set of 2 Freestanding Lace Machine Embroidery Designs.
The parts of the Shamrock FSL Doily are embroidered in the same way as 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.

You will need Vilene water soluble stabilizer, and embroidery threads. The diameter of the finished doily is 14".

Step One: Embroider part #1 once and part #2 eight times.
Use 2 layers of Vilene-type water-soluble stabilizer. To get neat-looking embroidery, use 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 with steam. On your working table, lay out the designs as shown on the picture above. Thread a needle with the same thread that you used for the embroidery and stitch together the parts in the places marked with red.
