Doilies with Squares-and-Ruffles FSL Crochet Motif

Here are some ideas on how to assemble the Squares-and-Ruffles FSL Crochet Motif into different lace doilies.

All patterns on this page were made using water-soluble Vilene stabilizer and 40-weight 100% cotton machine quilting Signature thread.

If you are new to crochet embroidery, please read the General Guidelines and Step-by-Step Guide to Embroidering our Crochet-Style FSL Designs first, as it might be very helpful.

To get a doily like the one on the photo bellow, you'll have to embroider the motif four times. Trim the stabilizer, leaving about 1/2" around each design. DO NOT dissolve the stabilizer yet.

Treat the Vilene as fabric. Fold it and, using a zigzag, stitch the sides of squares to each other. Use the same threads as the ones with which you made the embroidery.
You can now dissolve the water-soluble stabilizer. Rinse the stabilizer carefully, changing water in the bowl several times. The more you rinse, the softer is the lace. Spread the the doily evenly and leave to air dry.
The finished size of the doily is about 13 inches in diameter.

For the second doily, besides the water-soluble Vilene and cotton threads, you'll also need an 11" x 11" piece of cotton or linen cloth (we used cotton fabric). The finished size of this doily is about 17" in diameter.

Embroider the crochet motif seven times. You do not need to dissolve the stabilizer now. Trim it, leaving about 1/2" around each design.

Lay out the motifs on the fabric to form a star. Treat the Vilene as fabric. Fold it and pin the lace to the fabric. Using a zigzag, stitch the sides of the squares to the fabric. Use the same threads with which you made the embroidery. Cut away the excess fabric from under the lace.
You can now dissolve the water-soluble stabilizer. Rinse the stabilizer carefully, changing water in the bowl several times. The more you rinse, the softer is the lace. Spread the the doily evenly and leave to air dry.

The doilies are ready. Enjoy!
