Using the Baby Lock Flourish 2 embroidery machine; with its embroidery technology, along with an Exclusive built-in design, to create an embroidered scarf with perfect design placement. In this project, using the hoop and grid while floating the scarf over the hoop will get you to a point of sheer delight.

Materials:

  • Baby Lock Dissolve-Away Mesh Stabilizer (BLS500)
  • Purchased silk pashmina scarf
  • Madeira® embroidery thread
  • Bobbin thread
  • Water soluble marking pen or Chalko marking tool
  • Temporary Spray Adhesive

Tools:

Steps:

  1. Hoop the Stabilizer in the 5” x 7” hoop while following the next set of steps:

    • Place the grid inside the hoop. • Using a pen, place marks on the stabilizer through the holes on the grid sheet along the length of the hoop. These marks will indicate the center point on the hoop along with an even straight line across the hoop. • Remove the grid. • Spray the hooped stabilizer with the temporary spray adhesive. • Set the hoop aside for now.

  2. Determine the placement of the design on the scarf:

    • Measuring across the width and divide this number by two. • Measure 6” up from the bottom edge of the scarf

  3. With the hoop on a flat surface, place the scarf with the cross-marks centered over the center point on the hoop.

    Line the scarf up so that it is even with the straight line on the hoop. Do not distort the scarf when placing it on the stabilized hoop. Finger press to secure the scarf in the hoop.

  4. Set up the machine for embroidery:

    • Select design 006 from the Exclusive Design Home Accents (as shown below). • Thread the machine with the Madeira embroidery thread. • Place a bobbin in the bobbin case. • Place the hoop on the embroidery arm. • Keep the other portions of the scarf away and free from the hoop.

  5. Embroider the design using the same thread color for all three color stops.

  6. Remove the hoop from the machine.

  7. Remove most of the stabilizer from the scarf by trimming close to the embroidery design.

  8. Using warm water to rinse away any remaining stabilizer.

  9. Repeat for the other end of the scarf.
