To embroider this set we used 60-weight 100% cotton embroidery threads; both emroidery rayon and polyester also give good results.
Some points to remember from the General Guidelines:
Use Vilene water soluble stabilizer;
Use the same thread for the upper and bobbin thread to get two-sided embroidery.
DO NOT embroider several designs in one hoop.
The FSL designs can be then stitched onto fabric.
Another method of combining the designs from this Hardanger set with fabric is described in the Hardanger FSL Set Guide.
This set consists of five designs. Like all our hardanger sets, it's best for table linen.
On the above photo you can see one of the parts used as a coaster. Sewn together several of the same part can form a doily , as shown on the photo below.
This same doily can be used as a lace insert on a table topper. We used a piece of white linen, and finished the edges with the edge and corner elements from the same set.
We embroidered all the needed parts as FSL designs and then machine-stitched them onto the fabric. We cut away the fabric under the insert.
The edges are finished with the edge and corner designs from the same set.
The edge element can also be used as a bookmark.You can embroider it in any color, add a tassel and a beautiful bookmark is ready. Great for a gift.
