~ Especially strong water-soluble stabilizer, for example, Madeira Avalon Ultra.

~ Threads of suitable color. We recommend taking polyester yarns in this case, for example, Madeira Polyneon Polyester. They are much better for this embroidery project, because viscose is too soft for lace.

Note: the information file contains shades, as an example, according to the Madeira Classic palette. Pay attention to this.

That is all, nothing supernatural. Now consider the process of embroidery.

Step one – Hooping the stabilizer

Take the necessary piece of water-soluble stabilizer and hoop it into the embroidery frame. If you use a less dense stabilizer like Madeira Avalon Ultra, fold it into three or four layers to give the embroidery a special density.

Step two – Embroidery

This process does not differ from embroidery of other products. The main thing that the color of the lower thread should be the same as the upper one. Moreover, with each color transition, it is necessary to change the thread on the bobbin. In addition, it is necessary to trim excess threads neatly after each embroidery stage.

Step three – Trimming the excess stabilizer

Cut off the excess stabilizer, retreating approximately 0.1 or 0.3 Inches from the edge of the embroidery.

Step four – Washing the stabilizer

Important: At the beginning, carefully read the instructions that your manufacturer offers. It may differ from other products.

At this stage, it is necessary to soak the flower parts in water to dissolve the stabilizer. Make sure that it is well washed off. At the same time, it is important not to overexpose them, so that at the end the flower kept its shape and was rigid enough.

Step five – Drying and ironing of parts

Take the flower parts out of the water, dry them with a towel. Then iron them, applying a handkerchief or a natural cloth flap on top to avoid damaging the embroidery.

Step six – Making the product

Collect and sew all parts of the flower. In order to fasten the ring, sew on the tape Velcro or attach the button.
