The Poppy Cutwork Lace design can be embroidered as an insert, a freestanding ornament or an applique. Here are the instructions for all versions.

You will need fabric, water soluble mesh and embroidery polyester threads.

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.

Cutwork Insert

Step One: Hoop the fabric with water soluble mesh. Start the machine from the second color. It will embroider the outline of the design and stop.
