Stabilizers: We recommend to use water-soluble mesh, such as Vilene. Vilene D0102 is a non woven dissolvable stabilizer which is imported into the US, is sold in large rolls and is sometimes repackaged under different brand names. Some of these brand names are Fabri-Solvy by Sulky, Wash-Away, and Aqua Magic.
Film-like water soluble stabilizers, such as Solvy by Sulky or Avalon by Madeira, are not good for cutwork projects.
Please note, we DO NOT recommend to use rayon embroidery threads with water soluble mesh because its chemicals can ruin the thread.
Step One: Hoop the fabric with water soluble mesh. Start the machine. It will embroider the circle and stop. Start the machine again, it will embroider the flowers.
Step Two: Take the hoop from the machine. With a pair of sharp scissors, cut away the fabric in the areas shown on the picture- between the circle and the flower outline.
Step Three: Return the hoop to the machine and finish embroidering.
Step Four: Wash away the stabilizer, neatly spread on a flat surface and leave to air dry. Press.
We used the stitch-outs to make small cosmetic bags.
