Done with Embird Studio (Digitizing Tools)

    Price: $ 25


This CD video tutorial demonstrates how to digitize lace that looks like Filet Crochet. This is the type of lace you see those beautiful lacy curtains made out of. The type of delicate curtains that are very costly, but are so beautiful! This type of crochet is also used for doilies, clothing, and inserts which have the material cut out under the insert. There are so many possibilities of how to use this lace. This lace is Free Standing Lace and is embroidered on water soluble stabilizer.

 I spend time to show you how to develop the patterns for this type of work in several different ways using several options for working with graphics and programs you may have. I also show you how to create your pattern easily working in just Embird Studio if you don't have a graphic program. You can even use Embird’s Cross stitch program to easily develop your patterns for Filet Crochet. The making of the graphic patterns for Filet Crochet is very fun!

Then you will learn several different options for creating the Filet Crochet stitches and different styles of construction. I empathize ways to have a design be stable enough to be washed, as we would want to wash these curtains and doilies. Also stressed is the importance of a good sewout with as low stitch count as possible to keep the design looking delicate and authentic looking as  Filet Crochet is meant to be.

 You also are shown ways to make 3 different sizes of filet stitches in order to make various projects down to the most delicate of laces. Techniques are demonstrated to make  Filet Crochet scalloped edgings, edging corners, and lace inserts..

You will receive several graphics and pre-made grids to get you started. Included are “Guidelines for Embroidering Free Standing Lace”. I won an embroidery contest with these guidelines! Plus you receive a couple of free designs ready to sew out! Similar designs others are charging more than the price of this entire CD!
