Snowman Cutwork Lace

The Snowman Cutwork Lace design can be embroidered both as an insert and as a freestanding ornament. Here are the instructions for both versions.

You will need fabric, water soluble mesh and embroidery threads. Please note that embroidery polyester threads, weight 40, are preferable for the project.
Cotton thread is not suitable because the embroidery will be bulky.
Rayon thread is very sensitive to the chemicals in the watersoluble stabilizers.
