The doily is ready. Enjoy!

Note: the design can be embroidered as an insert on wholecloth table linen. If you want it as an insert, hoop the fabric with water-soluble mesh.

Skip Step One of the instructions and start embroidering with Step Two.

In Step Three DO NOT cut away the fabric around the circle! Cut it only inside the circle. Proceed to Steps Four and Five.

Happy Embroidering!
