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 real item.

Both designs are embroidered in the same way as freestanding patterns.

Step One: Hoop 2 layers of watersoluble mesh. Start the machine. The machine will embroider the outline of the design and stop.

Step Two: Cover the oval with a piece of fabric. Start the machine. It will embroider the outline of the design over the fabric and stop.

Step Three: Take the hoop from the machine. With a pair of sharp scissors, cut away the fabric around the leaf and flowers and inside the leaf as shown.

Step Four: Return the hoop to the machine and finish embroidery. Wash away the stabilizer.

The Doily

To make the doily, embroider the central part, the circle, once and the leaf part 8 times.

Position all parts as shown on the diagram below and either hand-stitch, or using zig-zag, machine-stitch the parts together. Use the same thread with which your made the embroidery.
