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.

Step One: Hoop the fabric with a layer of water soluble mesh. Start embroidering. The first color will embroider the outline of the design and stop.

Step Two: Take the hoop from the machine. With a pair of sharp scissors cut out the fabric in the places shown on the picture below. Cut as close to the stitches as possible, but take care not to cut through the stitches and through the stabilizer.

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

Step Four: Cut away the excess stabilizer around the embroidery. Wash away the remaining stabilizer and leave to air dry. Press with steam if needed.

Happy Embroidering!
