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 the cutwork projects.

Please note, we DO NOT recommend to use rayon embroidery threads with water soluble mesh because its chemicals ruin the thread.

Border

Step One: Hoop 2 layers of water soluble mesh.
Start the machine. It will embroider the outline and stop.

Step Two: Place a piece of fabric over the mesh to cover the outline. You can pin this piece to the mesh outside the embroidery area.
Start the machine. It will embroider the same outline and the outline of the leaves and stop.

Step Three: Take the hoop from the machine. With a pair of sharp scissors cut away the fabric in the areas shown on the picture - outside the design and inside around the leaves. Take care not to cut through the stabilizer and stitches.

Step Five: Wash away the stabilizer and neatly spread the design on a flat surface, leave it to air dry. Press.

We used two stitch-outs to decorate a cotton tea towel. Prepare a towel.
