FSL Crochet Forget-Me-Not Doily and Bowl

These are instructions on how to embroider and assemble the FSL Crochet Forget-Me-Not Doily and Bowl.
The parts of the FSL Crochet Forget-Me-Not Set are embroidered in the same way as our crochet-style freestandng lace.
You will find detailed intructions on how to embroider crochet-style FSL in our Guide.

Most Importantly: ALWAYS make a test stitch-out of the design. This helps you to select the threads, needles, stabilizers and settings of your machine correctly.

Some points to remember from the General Guidelines:
Use Vilene water soluble stabilizer;
Use the same COTTON thread for the needle and bobbin.
DO NOT embroider several designs in one hoop.

Doily

The finished size of this doily is about 16 1/2" (42 1/2 cm) in diameter.

Step One: For the doily, you need to embroider the files "Doily_Forget-Me-Not" six times and "Doily_Forget-Me-Not2" three times.

Use 2 layers of Vilene-type water-soluble stabilizer. Use the same cotton thread for both the needle and bobbin.
Rinse the stabilizer and leave to air dry.

Step Two: Press all parts with steam. Thread your sewing machine with the same thread that you used for the embroidery. Using the zig-zag stitch, stitch the six parts1 into pairs. You will get 3 pairs. Then stitch each part2 to a pair.You will get 3 segments.

Finally stitch together all three segments of the doily together.

The doily is ready!

Bowl

The finished size of the bowl is about 6 1/4" (16 cm) in diameter at the bottom and about 11" (28cm) in diameter at the top. For the bowl's bottom, you will need a piece of non-fraying fabric.

Step Three: To make the bowl, embroider the files "Doily_Forget-Me-Not" four times.Use 2 layers of Vilene-type water-soluble stabilizer. Use the same cotton thread for both the needle and bobbin.
Rinse the stabilizer and leave to air dry.

Step Four: Hoop your fabric with iron-on cut-away stabilizer and embroider the file "Motif forBowl".
Note: It's possible to use polyester craft felt to stabilize the fabric.

Step Five: Press all parts with steam. Thread your sewing machine with the same thread that you used for the embroidery. Using the zig-zag, stitch all crochet parts together.

Then, place them over the embroidered fabric and pin in place. Using short, but NOT dense zigzag, stitch the lace to the fabric.

With a pair of sharp scissors, cut away the excess fabric beyond the zigzag stitch. Return to the machine and using very dense zigzag, stitch the lace to the fabric.

The set is ready. Enjoy!
