For embroidery of this design you need:

— Suitable fabric. We recommend embroidering this design on cotton or linen.
— Dense water-soluble stabilizer
— Thin needle
— Embroidery pattern

At the first stage of embroidery, the fabric should be applied to the water-soluble stabilizer. Then, put it in the embroidery frame with the stabilizer. Check if you tightened the screw so that the fabric does not slip.

At the beginning the machine marks those places where it will be necessary to cut out the fabric. Then you need to cut out the necessary places for these markers. At this stage, it is important to make the slots accurate and not to damage the stabilizer. All embroiderers use thin scissors, but we also recommend taking Double Curved Embroidery Scissors for Cutwork. You can buy them at specialized craft shops or on Internet sites.


*** Cut the fabric near sewn cut lines, but not too close, otherwise the fabric may crumble. So, if you decide to embroider this design on linen fabric, choose a fabric with a dense texture of weave. When embroidering such a design on a loose, or as it said, light flax, you can face the shedding of tissue along the sewn cut lines.

** At the stage of making the slots, back off from sewn cut lines marking about 1.5 mm.

At the second stage, the design is embroidered to the end. Then you should wash, dry and iron the fabric, and embroidery in the fashionable Cutwork technique is ready.
