You will need fabric, water soluble meshand embroidery threads.

We recommend to use water-soluble mesh,such as Vilene. Vilene D0102is a non woven dissolvable stabilizer which is imported into the US, issold in large rolls and is sometimes repackaged under different brandnames.

Some of these brand names are Fabri-Solvy by Sulky, Avalon Plus byMadeira, Wash-Away, and Aqua Magic.

40-50-weight embroidery cotton threads arepreferred for the project.
Rayon thread is softer and more sensitive to the chemicals in thewater-soluble mesh. We do not like to use rayon thread for cutwork laceprojects.

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


Both files are embroidered in the same way.

Step One: Hoop 1-2layers of water soluble mesh. Start embroidering. The firstcolor will embroider the outline of thedesign.

StepFive: In the same way embroider Part 2. You need toembroider it once.

Washingout the Stabilizer:

Rinsing away the stabilizer is also animportant step, because the lacecan be stretched or distorted if this is done incorrectly. We recommendto use a foam board and stainless pins.

Cut away the excess stabilizer close to thestitches. Take your timeand carefully pin all the edges to theboard.

Now place the board into a bowl withluke-warm water. Leave the boardin the water for at least half an hour. Change the water a couple oftimes.

Take the board out of the water and leave toair dry. Do not unpin thelace until it's completely dry.
Press, if needed.
