FSL Meadow Flowers Doily

FSL Meadow Flower Doily is a set of 5 freestanding lace machine embroidery designs.
These designs are embroidered in the same way as our ornaments, so please read the General Guidelines first.

Some points to remember from the General Guidelines:
Use Vilene water soluble stabilizer;
Use the same thread for the upper and bobbin to get two-sided embroidery.
DO NOT embroider several designs in one hoop.

You will need Vilene water soluble stabilizer, embroidery threads and a 14" x 15" piece of linen fabric. The finished size of the table runner is about 14" x 15" .

Step One: Embroider each part twice. Use 2 layers of Vilene-type water-soluble stabilizer. To get neat embroidery, use thread of the same color for both the needle and bobbin. Rinse the stabilizer and leave to air dry.

Step Two: Press all parts with steam. Lay out the designs on your working table. Thread a needle with the same thread that you used for the embroidery and sew the parts together in the places where they touch each other.

Step Three: Lay the lace frame on your fabric. Either baste or pin the lace in place.

Thread a needle with the same thread that you used for the embroidery and, using short but NOT dense zigzag, stitch along the inner edge of the lace to secure it in place.

Step Four: Using a sharp pair of scissors, cut away the excess fabric from under the lace.

Return to your machine and using a very dense zigzag, of the same width as the lace edge, stitch along the edge of the fabric. Continue to use the same thread with which you embroidered the designs.
