Before proceeding to embroider the crochet lace, please read the General Guidelines and Step-by-Step Guide to Embroidering our Crochet-Style FSL designs.

The main points to be remembered: Use water-soluble mesh. Some of the brand names for mesh are Fabri-Solvy by Sulky, Avalon Plus by Madeira, Wash-Away, and Aqua Magic.
Film-like water soluble stabilizers, such as Solvy by Sulky, Avalon by Madeira, Badge Master, are not suitable for Free-Standing Crochet Lace embroidery.
Use cotton thread both in the needle and in the bobbin.
ALWAYS make a test stitch-out of the lace. This helps you to select the threads, needles, stabilizers and settings of your machine correctly

Step One: Hoop 2 layers of water-soluble mesh. Make a test-stitch of the designs. If you like the stitch-outs, proceed to step two.

Step Two: Embroider the corner triangle four times.
Embroider the edge lace at least 2 times for every side. You'll need 8 parts in all. If you want a larger doily, embroider the edge lace as many times as you need.

Trim the stabilizer, leaving at least 3/4" around each design. DO NOT dissolve the stabilizer yet.

Please read the Step-by-Step Guide to Assembling crochet-style FSL Designs into a Project first.

Step Three: Using a short and dense zigzag, stitch all the lace parts together. Start with a triangle and stitch two edge pieces in a row, finish the row with a second triangle, stitch another row of 2 edge pieces, repeat with the third and fourth triangle and remaining 4 edge pieces. You'll end up with a lace frame.

Step Four: Place the edge lace frame over a piece of fabric. The fabric piece ahould be larger than the inner openning of the lace frame.
Pin or baste the lace over the fabric, then zigzag in place. Now trim the excess fabric from under the lace.

Step Five: You can now go ahead and dissolve the water-soluble stabilizer. Place the doily into a bowl of warm water; change the water several times. So that the doily dries evenly, spread it on a flat surface and let it air dry. Then press carefully.

We made a table topper with the The FSL Crochet Scroll Border Set. We used 6 edge lace pieces on each side. The finished side of the table topper is about 37" x 37".

The swallows used on the table topper are from the Swallow Set.

We hope that you like our idea and will come up with many of your own.
