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.

The Doily

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

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

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. Take care not to cut through the stabilizer and stitches.
