    Embroidered napkins are the classic decoration of a modern house. They easily fit into the interior of any living room or kitchen. If you have an embroidery machine and free time, you can make it yourself. It is needed sometimes to process the edge of a fabric beautifully.

    There are a lot of creative methods to do this and we will consider one in the master-class: lace making on the edge of a items. One may decorate a dining cotton napkin, a handkerchief or any other items this way. There is a plenty of machine embroidery designs in FSL technique, choose the one you prefer for your items. Such patterns can be easily found in our embroidery design library.

    Materials which you need for work:  

    • Water soluble machine embroidery stabilizer (interlining).
    • Our recommendation Avalon.
    • Adhesive spray of a temporary fixation Sulky or GUNOLD KK100
    • Top thread for machine embroidery (any brand) - we using Robison Anton
    • Lower thread for machine embroidery or bobbins
    • Fabric for the napkin

    Processing of lace on the edge of a embroidered item:

    Fix the water soluble stabilizer in the hoop. Download the embroidery design to the your machine (or save to USB stick or special memory card). Start the embroidery processing. The first stitching would mark where to layout the edge of the tissue on the stabilizer.
