Cutwork Oval Geranium Lace

These are instructions on how to embroider the Celtic Knot Cutwork Lace Motif.

Celtic Knot Cutwork Lace Motif
Large Hoop:

Size: 125mm x 125mm (5" x 5")
Stitches: 31409
Colors: 2

Mega Hoop:

Size: 149mm x 149mm (5.96" x 5.96")
Stitches: 37314
Colors: 2

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

Step One: To embroider this design, hoop the fabric with a layer of water soluble mesh. Start embroidering. The machine will embroider the outline of the design and stop.

Step Two: Take the hoop from the machine. With a pair of sharp scissors cut away the fabric. The areas of fabric which are meant to be removed are darkened in the picture.

Step Three: Return the hoop to the machine and finish embroidering. Wash away the stabilizer and leave to air dry. Press with steam.

It can also be used as a lace insert. Here we show a square doily with the insert.
