Sweater with Oriental Fans Machine Embroidery

This project shows a light spring sweater decorated with machine embroidery designs in the cross stitch technique. We used the designs from the Decorative Fan Set.

You will need light-weight cut-away stabilizer, water soluble stabilizer and either rayon or polyester 40-weight embroidery threads.

Important Note: Always make a test stitch-out of the design. For this project, test it on a piece of jersy (use an old sweater). You might need to make several test stitch-outs before you will find the correct threads and machine settings for the job.

Step One: Place the light cut-away stabilizer under the fabric and water soluble stabilizer on top of the fabric. Hoop. Make the embroidery.

Step Two: Remove the finished embroidery from the hoop, cut away the excess stabilizers. Place the sweater into a bowl with warm water, change water several times until you wash away all the residue of watersoluble stabilizer.

Step Three: Spread flat on a towel and leave to air dry.

The project is ready! Enjoy!
