3D Spring Flower Wreath Doily

Our FSL designs are embroidered in the same way as 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.

Here are the instructions on how to make the 3D Spring Flower Wreath Doily.

The finished size of the doily is about 16" by 16". You will need cotton or linen fabric for the insert (about 19" x 19"), water soluble Vilene and embroidery threads.

To make this doily, you'll have to embroider seven doily panels, which is in the first row on the picture. There are also three types of flowers. Embroider both parts for the yellow flower seven times; and the parts of the red and violet flowers fourteen times each.

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.

Impotant 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, it's 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.

Press the doily panels with steam. Do not press the flower parts. Using invisible thread, zigzag the panels together first. You'll get an FSL wreath.

Using a sharp pair of scissors, cut away the excess fabric under the lace.
