Cutwork Lace Candle II

The Cutwork Lace Candle II design is available in 2 sizes: for the large hoop, 5" x 7" (130 x 180 mm), and for the mega hoop, 6" x 8" or larger. The design can be embroidered both as an insert and as a freestanding ornament.

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

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, Avalon Plus by Madeira, Wash-Away, and Aqua Magic.

40-weight embroidery polyester threads are preferred for the project.

Cotton thread is not suitable because the embroidery will be too bulky.

Rayon thread is sensitive to the chemicals in the water-soluble mesh and will not work for the project.

Please note: ALWAYS make a test stitch-out on scrap before you make a stitch-out on the final item.

Both designs are embroidered in the same way. They both can be embroidered as inserts or freestanding ornaments.

Cutwork Insert

Step One: To embroider the design as an insert, hoop the fabric with a layer of water soluble mesh. Start embroidering. The first color will embroider a diamond shape and stop. Start the machine again; the second color will embroider the outline of the holly and candle inside the diamond and stop.

Step Two: Take the hoop from the machine. With a pair of sharp scissors cut away the fabric inside the diamond and around the candle and holy. Be careful not to cut the stabilizer.

Step Three: Return the hoop to the machine and finish embroidering.

Step Four: Wash away the stabilizer and leave to air dry. Press with steam.

Free-Standing Ornament

Step One: To embroider the design as an ornament, hoop 2 layers of watersoluble mesh. Start the machine. The first color will embroider the diamond shape and stop.

Step Two: Cover the shape with a piece of fabric. Start the machine. The second color will embroider the outline of the design over the fabric.

Wash away the stabilizer. The ornament is ready. We used these stitch-outs to make a greeting card...
