These are instructions on how to embroider the Cutwork Lace Flower Doily design. The design is available in 3 sizes for the large (5" x 7"), mega (6" x 10") and commercial (over 10") hoops.
The finished size of the doilies are about 5" x 5" (large), 6" x 6" (mega) and 7 1/2" x 7 1/2" (commercial).
You will need fabric for the applique, water soluble mesh and embroidery threads.
Step One: To embroider this design, hoop a layer of water soluble mesh. Start embroidering. The machine will embroider the outline of the design and stop.
Step Two: Cover the outline with fabric and start the machine. The machine will embroider the outline of the lace and stop.
Step Three: Take the hoop from the machine. With a pair of sharp scissors cut away the fabric in the areas shown on the picture - around the inner circle and around the flowers. Note that there are small bridges between the neighbouring flowers.
Step Four: Return the hoop to the machine and finish embroidering.
Step Five: Wash away the stabilizer and neatly spread on flat surface and leave to air dry. Press if needed.
