Fleur de Lis Doily

These are instructions on how to embroider the Fleur de Lis Cutwork Doily. The doily is split into several parts/designs. Each part is embroidered separately.

You will need fabric for the applique, water soluble mesh and embroidery threads. All parts are embroidered in the same way.
You will get 5 embroidery files. Embroider each file once.

Step One: Hoop 2 layers of water soluble mesh. Upload the first file into your machine. Start embroidering. The machine will embroider the outline of the design and stop.

Step Two: Cover the outline with a piece of fabric and start the machine. The machine will embroider the outline on the fabric and stop.

Step Five: Repeat Steps 1 through 4 for all files.

Step Six: Neatly cut away the excess stabilizer around the parts. Wash away the remaining stabilizer, neatly spread on a flat surface and leave to air dry. Press if needed.

Step Seven: Position the parts together to form the doily. Using the same threads with which you made embroidery, hand-stitch the parts together.
