FSL Irish Harp and Shamrock Greeting Card

These are instructions on how to embroider the FSL Ireland Forever design and make a greeting card with it. The card is great for St. Patrick's Day.

To embroider the design you will need water-soluble mesh, embroidery threads (rayon or polyester) and a piece of sheer organza.

Step One: Hoop a layer of watersoluble mesh. Start the machine. The machine will embroider the outline of the harp and stop.

Step Two: Place a piece of organza on the outline and start the machine. It will embroider the same outline over the fabric and stop again.

Step Three: With a pair of sharp scissors cut away the fabric close to the stitches.

Step Four: Return the hoop to the machine and finish the embroidery.

Step Five: Rinse the stabilizer in lukewarm water. Neatly spread on a towel. Leave to air dry.

Making a Greeting Card

For the project you will need a sheet of cardstock, a pencil, craft glue and craft knife or scissors.

Step One: Fold a sheet of cardstock in half. Cut it to the size you need. Place the embroidered harp on the front of the card. With a needle punch through the design several dots, as shown on the photo below.

Step Two: With the pencil connect the dots.

Step Three: With the craft knife, or scissors, cut away the shape.

Step Four: Put a thin layer of glue along the openning.
Put a thin layer of glue on the back side of the harp.

Step Five: Position the embroidery over the opening in the card. Press with fingures. Place under a press (heavy book). Leave for a couple of hours to dry.
