Cutwork Lace Rose Corner

These are instructions on how to embroider the Cutwork Lace Rose Corner design. The design is available in 2 sizes for the large (5" x 7") and mega (6" x 10") hoops.

We also show how to make a doily using the motif. On the photo you can see the doily with the motif for a mega hoop and a greeting card with the motif for a large hoop.

One of the advantages of the design is that you embroider each pattern separately and then incorporate them into a larger project - this eliminates the possibility of ruining your project if something goes wrong during embroidery.

Straight stitch (the length of the stitch should be 1mm) the inner outline of the lace frame to the fabric as shown in red. Both in the needle and in the bobbin, use thread of the same color as the embroidery.
