Valentine FSL Gift Bag

The parts of our Valentine FSL Gift Bag are embroidered in the same way as our FSL ornaments, so please read the General Guidelines first.

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.

To make the bag, you'll have to embroider two face panels, which is the first part on the picture below, two side panels, which is the second part on the picture and one bottom, which is the third part on the picture.

Use 2 layers of Vilene-type water-soluble stabilizer and use the same thread for both
the needle and bobbin to get 2-sided embroidery. Rinse the stabilizer and leave to air dry.

Press with steam.

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, they're 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.

Start assembling by attaching the face panels to the bottom. Take the bottom and one of the face panels. Place them together, wrong side to wrong side, aligning the bottom edges and zigzag over the edge with invisible thread. Unfold the seam.
Take the second panel, align its bottom edge with the remaining long edge of the bottom and zigzag over the edge with invisible thread. Fold all seams.

Now take one of the side panels, align its edges with one of the side edges of the bottom and the edges of both face panels. Zigzag over the edge with invisible thread. Repeat with the second side panel.
