I wanted these designs to fit the 4 inch hoop but the details were too small IMO. So I separated the top hanger and bow as a separate design that can be added to the 4 inch bell itself. I also included the full bell ornament which is 6 inches.

This week Dee sewed the design on one layer Vilene. Once all the vilene is completely washed out it is a sturdy free standing lace ornament. I think you will agree when I say it is gorgeous.
This week Dee has sewn the oval A design on a napkin. I love these green and navy colors together. I asked her to sew just one project. It’s too much to sew the designs in every possible method each week. So each week the newest letter will be sewn in one method.
These designs are quite versatile in that they can be used several different ways:
They can be sewn on fabric sewing just the frame and lettering
They can be sewn on fabric sewing the frame, lettering, and the lace fill
They can be sewn on towels or other similar fabrics using the lace fill for the embossing before the rest of the design sews. (See my white towel with Turquoise embroidery.)
They are FSL – Sew the whole design using the letter of your choice or without the letter
It can be used for Cutwork Lace. After washing out the water soluble stabilizer, the FSL can be appliqued to fabric by zig zag around the outside border of the lace. Then cut away the fabric from behind it for cutwork lace.
This collectible series was not planned. A friend needed a lace design with a center that would support lettering. This is how it started. It has been a long time since I made lace. So I went about working on it. It turned out so nice I decided to make it a series.
My friend Dee has graciously offered to sew these for me in various projects. This is a great help to me, especially for a series that was not on my schedule. I have sewn all of the letter W projects myself and know they sew very well.
