Free Embroidery Project – Deco Candlewicking Table Centrepiece

We all love new toys, and one of my recent purchases has been the double mitre ruler from The Sewing Revolution. So when I was creating a great new set of art deco candlewicking designs, I really wanted to create an elegant  shaped table centrepiece.  If you don’t have (or don’t want) a double mitre ruler, you can still easily create a magnificent table centrepiece and bind it like a quilt.  I hope you enjoy these lovely new designs.

Instructions

  1. Load your embroidery design into your machine.
  2. Print out template for the centrepiece, and pierce holes in the centre points.
  3. Take the 19” squares of linen and pellum, and lay the linen on top of the pellum. Take the template and mark up the hooping positions with a lead or disappearing pencil.
  4. One at a time, hoop the linen, pellum and stabiliser, and embroider the 6 designs onto the linen.
