Modern Accessories for 16-inch Fashion Dolls

The Modern Accessories for 16-inch fashion dolls are made in a technique which imitates the knit and crochet materials. The set consists of a hat and scarf , lacey brimmed hat and shawl.

Stabilizers: 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. Two of these brand names are Wash-Away and Aqua Magic. Film-like water soluble stabilizers, such as Solvy, are not suitable for Free-Standing Lace embroidery.

Threads: At least one of the threads, either in the bobbin or in the needle, should be cotton.
If you are using 50- or 60-weight cotton, you should use it both in the bobbin and in the needle. If you use 40-weight cotton thread for the needle, you can use regular polyester bobbin thread. If you are using a specialty thread such as metallic thread, then always use cotton thread in the bobbin.
The thinner the thread, the finer the final product will be.
We recommend Signature machine quilting thread, Brother (Pacesetter) 50wt machine quilting thread, Mettler 50wt or 60wt machine quilting thread and similar threads of other companies.

Needles: We use size 75/11 embroidery needles for 50- and 60-weight cotton and 80/12 embroidery needles with 40-weight cotton.
Use special needles with metallic thread.

Most Importantly: ALWAYS make a test stitch-out of the design and wash away the stabilizer. This helps you to select the threads, needles, stabilizers and settings of your machine correctly. DO NOT embroider several designs in one hoop.

Hat and Scarf

Step One: Embroider files "Hat" and "Scarf".

Wash away the stabilizer in cold water. To remove the stabilizer completely, leave the parts in a bowl of cold water for about an hour. Change the water several times. You can also use fabric softener in the last rinse.
Spread the parts on a towel and leave to air dry.

Step Two: Using the thread of the same color as the embroidery, join the halves of the scarf. You can do this either manually or on your sewing machine with a zig-zag stitch.

Step Three: Using the thread of the same color as the embroidery, manually join the triangles of the top first, then join the back seam.

Lacey Brimmed Hat

There are two files for this hat: "hat2" and "brims". Embroider each file once.
Rinse the stabilizer, air dry and press with steam.

Using the thread of the same color as the embroidery, manually join the triangles of the top first, then join the back seam.

Manually attach the brims. Decorate the har with ribbons and any small embellishments to your taste.

Our sample is embroidered with cotton Signature thread both in the needle and the bobbin.

To make the shawl, embroider the file "shawl" twice. Thoroughly rinse the stabilizer. Spread neatly and air dry. Using the same thread with which you made the embroidery, stitch two halves together.

Our sample is embroidered with silver metallic thread in the needle and bobbin polyester thread in the bobbin.
