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 the doily using the FSL Flower Table Runner set.
You will need Vilene water soluble stabilizer, and embroidery threads.
The finished size is about 15"x30". You can make it smaller or larger by adding more parts.
Step One: For this doily, you need to embroider:
the large flower eighteen times and
the small flower ten 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 with warm water 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 above picture. Thread a needle with the same thread that you used for the embroidery and sew together the parts in the places where the parts touch each other This has to be done manually.
