Begin by stitching each of the nine pieces of
freestanding lace. You will need four organza side pieces, four lace top pieces, and a base piece.
There are two different kinds of lace here:
traditional, stitched onto heavy water-soluble stabilizer, (here's more on stitching freestanding lace),
and organza applique. We're going to stitch each lace piece one at a
time -- only one piece per hooping.
The lace pieces with organza are pretty similar to normal lace,
except you'll be adding a piece of organza fabric partway through,
similar to applique. First, use the dieline file (UTZ2090_DL) to cut out
four organza rectangles. Then, to make your first organza lace piece,
hoop up your heavy duty water-soluble stabilizer nice and taut. The
first thing that will stitch is a placement dieline -- after that
stitches, spray the back of your organza fabric with temporary spray adhesive,
and stick it inside the rectangle. The next thing to stitch will be a
tackdown to hold the lace in place. Then all of the decorative details
will sew. Repeat these steps with the A, B, C, and D files -- when
you're done, you should have four rectangular panels, as shown.
