I don't cut it out, I use a soldering wand and run it around the edges. It melts it right to the stitching...just takes a second and it looks so professional.
May I ask where you got you soldering Iron and would it work for cutwork?
Got mine at Home Depot about 7 years ago and then it was around $12.00. It would work on cutwork only if you were using the organza or another fabric that would melt. Not cotton. At least that has been my experience.
Thanks for asking the question, I'd love to try this after the holidays and I buy all the stuff I need, lol!
I see you have the correct responses, here, but good luck in giving these a try. Most directions were given for the 3D angels, or butterlies. You can also do the FSL design on organza. I have done these just to have a little difference in the designs. The examples below show one stitched on Organza, and the second one stitch as the FSL. Both make beautiful results.
Thanks for the pics - will give it a try!
I use fsl patterns use organza-wws-organza hoop stitch take out of hoop and trim 1/16 sew if pieces are to be sew together the wet and position and dry if there is any wiskers after the organza frays they will be stiff and easy to trim. use this for lot of fsl projects flower pedals wing for butterfly . if I have a large piece of need extra stiffness I use stiff netting then use slury of wws scrap to add stiffness

interesting reading thanks for asking *4u all
Suzette, as Terre says, you hoop the WSS - stitch a section of the FSL Angel body - then stitch the organza in place - cut the outside of the organza away - stitch around the outside of the organza and then you finish stitching the angel - this gives you the FSL angel body and the organza wings with embroidery around the outside edges and pretty accent of the embroidery on those wings - you can also do this with special deisigns for butterflies as well. Aren't digitisers wonderful - they have a way of knowing when to stop the color sequence - so you can make the placement of the organza and cut away the organza and stitch it down with the rest of the stitching and make the whole design work together in one hooping?
Thank you Shirlene! Wonderful! Sounds like applique? Will have to buy design(s) and try!
Do you perhaps know of a freebie I can try before buying?
Yes, it is a combination of FSL and applique.
You can go to criswell-embroidery.com - they have a butterfly freebie - it is small but oh so cute - not as fancy as the ones they sell - but still gives you an idea of how to do it.
Thank you very much Shirlene!
Many thanks, this makes it sound as if I could give it a try !
