Cutwork Lace Olives II

The Cutwork Lace Olives II 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 fabric-like stabilizer (such as Fabri-Solvy by Sulky, Avalon Plus by Madeira, Wash-Away, Aqua Magic) and embroidery polyester threads.

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