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.

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

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

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