>HS101: Lace to Fabric


Use DMC heirloom sewing machine thread when doing this for real and needle size#60, #65 or #70.

For the sample I will just be using normal sewing thread so you can see it easy in the photos and it will be a contrasting color for the same reason.

prep work

  1. Cut 1 piece of lace and one piece of fabric the same length
  2. Prep by starching and pressing both (using clean iron, and clean board, also use spray starch)

How to

L = 0.5

  1. place right sides together with the lace being 1/4 to 1/8 of an inch away from the edge of the fabric
    1. placement
  2. using zig zag stitch stitch over the edge of the fabric and the edge of the lace” the header”. 
    1. sew zig zag satin stich
  3. press towards fabric
    1. wrong side before pressing

using correct thread this is what your finished piece should look like
