There are many beautiful lace designs for machine embroidery available. Although the designs are dense with thread, they do need tulle to hold together. Heavy weight water soluble stabilizer is perfect to keep the tulle stable in the hoop while the design is stitched out.
Gather the materials you will need to machine embroider lace designs.
  • Embroidery machine and design -- The design used in this example is a snowflake from Embroidery Library
  • Tulle
  • Heavy Water Soluble Stabilizer
  • Embroidery Thread and Bobbin Thread - It is preferable to have a bobbin thread that matches your embroidery thread.
I planned on hand sewing these snowflakes to a cream colored shawl so I used cream colored tulle.
