For this table topper we used the machine embroidery designs from the Peacock Feather Crochet Doily Set. Here we offer the instructions on how to make a table topper, but you can easily make a smaller doily, a table runner or even a table cloth using the parts from this set.
You will need water-soluble Vilene stabilizer and cotton embroidery threads for the lace. We used white Signature-brand quilting cotton thread. The finished size of the table topper is about 19" x 19".
The designs from the Peacock Feather Crochet Doily Set are a crochet-style FSL. Please read the General Guidelines and Step-by-Step Guide to Embroidering our Crochet-Style FSL designs.
Step One: For this table topper, embroider the large circle sixteen times, and the smaller circle nine times.
Dissolve the stabilizer and spread all parts out evenly to air dry. Press with steam if needed.
Step Two: On your working table, lay out the designs as shown on the picture. Thread a needle with the same thread that you used for the embroidery and stitch together the parts in the places marked with red. This has to be done manually.
