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.
However, if you use Fabri-Solvy by Sulky, you can use Sulky rayon thread.

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

Step One: To embroider the design as a free-standing coaster or small doily, hoop a layer of water soluble mesh. Start embroidering. The machine will embroider the outline of the design and stop.

Step Two: Cover the outline with a piece of fabric. You can pin the fabric to the stabilizer outside the embroidery field. Start the machine. It will embroider the same shape and the outline of the flowers over the fabric.

Step Three: Take the hoop from the machine. With a pair of sharp scissors cut away the fabric - around the stitch-out and inside the design. The areas of fabric which are meant to be removed are shown in the picture.

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

To embroider the design as an insert, hoop fabric stabilized with water-soluble mesh. Either embroider, or skip step 1 (the outline), follow steps 2 through 4 as described above.


Happy Embroidering!
