|Freestanding Lace (FSL) Fleur de Lis
Machine Embroidery Designs
|This set of two freestanding lace (FSL) designs are
patterned after the Fleur de Lis 1 and Mylar fleur de lis
and have been requested by a few customers.
It is recommended that 2-3 layers of washaway stabilizer
such as WetNGone, Sulky Solvy, Vilene, etc., be used to
achieve the desired project that will stand alone
and not be stitched on fabric.

|Libby tested the two sizes of FSL fleur de lis
using brown bobbin thread and gold top thread
using 2 layers of washable stabilizer.
|Design shown at left was stitched on two layers of Sulky
Solvy washable stabilizer sandwiched in the middle with a
layer of WetNGone washable stabilizer. This photo shows
the design after stitching before it was unhooped.
|Design is then unhooped and most of the stabilizer is
carefully cut away from the design using scissors.
|After rinsing design in a bowl of water,
it is laid to dry flat on a paper towel.
Leaving some slight residue from the
stabilizer when rinsing adds to the
embroidered design's stiffness.
|Fay decided to experiment and stitched the
smaller FSL fleur de lis
sold above on a napkin.
Although not originally designed for fabric, her design
stitched in Robison Anton "Old Gold" colored thread on
a black napkin is absolutely gorgeous!
