FSL Battenberg Victorian Coral Lace Border Set

The FSL Battenberg Victorian Coral Border Lace is a set of two designs that can be embroidered several times and assembled into circular edge lace for different doilies.

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: Use embroidery threads. We used 30-weight and 40-weight polyester in the needle and pre-wound polyester bobbins.

50- or 60-weight cotton in the needle also makes wonderful lace.
The thinner the thread, the finer the final product will be.

Needles: We use size 75/11 and 80/12 embroidery needles. The needles should be sharp, so it's advisable to change them after every project.

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.

The Pink Doily

The finished size of the small pink doily is about 10" x 10". We embroidered the lace with 30-weight embroidery polyester in the needle and pre-wound polyester bobbins. Lace made with these threads is soft, but has enough bulk that it doesn't appear spidery.

You will also need a piece of fabric about 8"x 8".

Step One: Make a test stitch-out of the file "motif A". If you are satisfied with the results, embroider the file three more times.

Rinse the stabilizer and leave to air dry.

Press all parts with steam. On your working table, lay out the designs in a circle.

Manually, join the parts at the points marked in red.

Step Two: Place the lace frame on a piece of fabric and pin in place.

Step Three: With a short but not very dense zig-zag , attach the lace to the fabric along the inner outline of the lace.

Step Four: With a pair of sharp scissors cut away the excess fabric close to the stitch.

Step Five: Return to your sewing machine and using short and dense zig-zag, stitch over the raw edge of the fabric from the wrong side.

The Star Doily/Table Topper

The finished size of the Star Doily is about 29" in diameter. We made this lace using Signature cotton quilting thread both in the needle and in the bobbin. Lace made with this thread is heavy and dense, making it great for a large project such as this. It's very easy to work with when assembling.

You will need a piece of fabric measuring about 28"x 28".

Embroider the files "motifA" and "motifB" six times each.
Rinse the stabilizer and leave to air dry.
Press all parts with steam. On your working table, lay out the designs according to the diagram below.

Manually, join the parts in the points marked in red.

Follow Steps 2 through 5 as described above to attach the lace to the fabric.

The Round Doily/Table Topper

The finished size of this doily is about 23" in diameter.We made this lace using 40-weight embroidery polyester thread in the needle and pre-wound polyester bobbins. Lace made with these threads is delicate and fine.

You will need a piece of fabric measuring about 28"x 28".

Embroider the file "motifB" ten times. Lay the patterns out according to the diagram below. Manually join the parts at the points marked in red.

Following Steps 2 through 5 above, attach the border to the fabric.

The doilies are ready! Enjoy!

Happy embroidering!
