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 softer and more sensitive to the chemicals in the water-soluble mesh. We do not like to use rayon thread for cutwork lace projects.

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

Free-Standing Doily:

Step One: Hoop 2 layers of water soluble mesh. Embroider the first color, which outlines the doily and shows you where to place the fabric.

Step Two: Cover the outline with a piece of fabric. Start the machine. It will embroider the outlines of the doily and flowers.

Step Three: Take the hoop from the machine. With a pair of sharp scissors cut away the fabric around the embroidered outlines.

Step Four: Wash away the stabilizer, neatly spread the stitch-outs on an even surface and leave to air dry. Press with steam if needed.
