I am unsure if there are instructions or not - I have made this bookmark and I just sorta followed the rules of applique, but stitched this on WSS - the 1st thread color to lay down the material - the 2nd thread color to cut the material away - the 3rd thread color to stitch around the material - then the other thread colors for the embroidery - along with cutting threads as I went and then the last thread color to stitch the satin stitches around the outside edge - when it was all finished - I rinsed it in hot water - to remove the rest of the WSS - blotted the bookmark between a towel and then dried it with a hair blower. I hope this helps.
Thank you very much for the information. I also downloaded the following design, Cute Embroidery christmas1968922. This is definitely not FSL. I put it on felt but wondered if it should have had a couple of layers. Any suggestions?
