Freestanding lace can be one of
the most dazzling things about machine embroidery.
Stitch out a specially digitized lace design onto
water-soluble stabilizer, then rinse the stabilizer
away, leaving only the stitches in a beautiful, airy
pattern. Lace designs can be pretty, they can be spooky,
and they can be made into things -- ornaments,
accessories, what-have-you. Urban Threads has lots of
freestanding lace embroidery designs, and more are
being added all the time.
Using the right materials and techniques can make a big
difference in the quality of your finished lace. Read on
to discover how to stitch freestanding lace
designs, avoid common problems, and make your lacy
designs look their best!
