And now we would like to talk about how to decorate ordinary placemats with themed Halloween Skull in Web Machine embroidery design. This is not difficult at all.

Embroidered placemats

Serving placemats are now very popular. That is why in the stores of textiles or home accessories you can find a variety of options. This makes it possible to choose a ready-made item, which is perfect for embroidering.

Typically, the serving mats are sewn from a fabric with strong fibers. For example, popular materials are burlap, canvas, dense or furniture linen, cotton.

If we talk about a placemat that perfectly fits into the interior of Halloween, then certainly burlap is an ideal option. As for the sizes, then the standard sizes are approximately 12 inches wide by 18 inches long or 14 inches wide by 20 inches long. If you cannot find the finished product in the store, you can buy burlap fabric in textile, cut off the necessary cloth. Sliced ​​tissue can be treated with an overlock or use a special spray against the fabric frying. The most commonly used are Fray Check from Prym or Aleene’s Stop Fraying.

So, you have purchased or made with your own hands a placemat from burlap of a suitable size. Need to move on to embroidery. Naturally, embroidery on burlap, however, like on other fabrics, has its own peculiarities. Let us consider them in more detail.

Machine embroidery on burlap fabric

Burlap is a fairly dense, and at the same time, loose fabric made of natural fibers. Embroidering on such a fabric is not as difficult as it may seem.

Design: Medium in density and dense designs are suitable for such embroidery. It is better not to use contour designs like Redwork.

Stabilizer: The choice of the lower stabilizer depends on the purpose of your project and the design you choose. Specifically, for this embroidery, you can use both tear-away and cut-away stabilizer. However, before using a tear-away stabilizer, we recommend testing the embroidery.

The looseness of the burlap leads to the using of an upper water-soluble stabilizer. For example, stabilizers from manufacturers Sulky Solvy or Madeira are ideal.

The using of a water-soluble stabilizer will help prevent missing stitches and “falling through” in the tissue structure. Embroidery will look beautiful and neat if you use it.

Hooping: Hoop the resulting “sandwich” in the frame.

Needle: Although it is a thick fabric, we recommend using a pointed needle #75/11. It will perfectly advance between the fibers of the fabric during embroidery. So the product will look neat.

Threads: Use any type of thread that you like. You can even embroider this design with a black or white fluorescent thread. So, on the day the embroidery will look as indicated in the sample, and as soon as it gets dark, the embroidery will amaze your guests with a bright green flicker.

Note: After you have embroidered a design, you need to cut off excess threads and remove the excess stabilizer. Please note that it is not recommended to wet the burlap completely. Therefore, tear off as much as possible the area of ​​the water-soluble stabilizer. To remove the small remaining pieces, wet the cloth with a damp sponge.

Halloween Skull in Web Machine embroidery design will be an excellent option for you to design a festive interior for Halloween.
