Classic FSL Doily.

I have made this doily with two designs from the 3D Lace Swan & Specialty Lace by Sue Box: the End Basket design from the Oval Basket (photo #2) and the Doily Centre design (photo #3) from the Large Doily.

I understand you use software to combine the designs but do you slightly overlap the designs? Or just butt them up to each other?

lidiad by lidiad edited 18 Apr 2015

This is what I do: I open one design only (this time is the end basket), select the Circle from the Auto Repeat function and the software overlaps the designs. This time there was a round space left in the middle, so I chose the second design and placed it in the middle. If you would like to have more info, send me a PM. Hugs, Lidia

rsehorse by rsehorse 18 Apr 2015

No, that makes perfect sense to me. Actually I forgot about using the auto repeat. Great idea. My new Dream Machine has so many features that are new to me. I am still learning and getting accustomed to. Thanks, Susan

Thank you, Shyam. It's not difficult to stitch like me, you just need an embroidery software and a large hoop... and an embroidery machine of course.... :)

Lovely! I want to make one. Do you rinse out before you stitch the parts together?

3 comments
lidiad by lidiad edited 17 Apr 2015

There is no need for me to hand or machine-stitch all the parts together, Christine. I combine the parts in my software and I stitch the whole doily out in one hooping. The complete doily measures 199x212mm (7.84x8.33") and I stitch it out in my 200x260mm hoop (8x10"

lidiad by lidiad 17 Apr 2015

Then I rinse it and let the doily dry. When dry, the doily is useable.
Hugs, Lidia

Thank you for your comment. I'm using a software for combining the designs. Once you know how the software works, then it's easy to do it.

Absolutely beautiful Lidia! Such a great job combining these designs :) these doilies must be a lot of work as they have so many stitches.....but worth it I would say :)
I must add that Sue's designs are so beautiful :)
And you do such a great job using them!

Thank you, Fatima. I have used my software to combine the designs and it was a matter of minutes. This doily has a lot of stitches but in ONE colour only, I was free to attend to other things while my machine was stitching, I only had to replace the bobbin when the machine stopped. I had much more work to do when I have stitched out designs with 48 colour changes.
Hugs, Lidia
