Taking your time in constructing a project is equally as
important as the embroidery.
Trim excess wss.
Notice in the picture, I have trimmed 1 edge very close and
left its match with a little wss on it.
That will allow me to overlap my pieces and stitch.
||Here I have overlapped my pieces. I am following the guide
above, and beginning with a straight stitch.
That allows me to make sure I have aligned my pieces
Notice also, I am working from the outer edge in... that is
also helpful when doing doilies ..that the points won't get
stuck in the feed dogs.
After setting pieces, go back with the zig zag to nicely finish
and secure pieces.
||Now to attach laces to the fabric...
Use the same color thread as your lace.
<<Place and pin as desired.
When sewing, remove pins as you meet them.
Here I want to sew on the inner edge, and I will use the
guide above, straight then lightening.
||Upon completion of stitching,
Turn project over and trim away excess fabrics.
I use the small scissors to trim closely.
Repeat lightening stitch to assist with the fabric fraying.
TIP: If you have any gaps in your project, missed securing
anything, you can always go back and resecure as
necessary even after your project is done.
I try to design easy attachment edge pieces, which is also a
great opportunity to go back and add decorative stitches on
the fabric as desired.
I use those stitching methods to attach all my lace pieces,
and include those techniques in my pdfs.
