  • Final Product: What You Will Create

    Preface:
    You can make these antique stars to hang on your tree, give as special gifts or place in your special cards. Make a single color or multi color you can let your imagination go wild on how to embellish them.  


    Step 1:
    Hoop the woven water soluble stabilizer. Make sure it is doubled as it needs this extra stabilizer. Thread your machine with Polyester thread. Do Not use Rayon as it will not sew as good. You can make the star any color, but use Polyester thread. (This is a different hoop, but same process. I forgot to take a pic of the actual hoop I used).

    Step 2:
    Select your favorite Kinship Kreations Lace Star file and sew onto the woven water soluble stabilizer.

    Step 3:
    After it is sewn out carefully cut around the design leaving a good 1/2" to 1" of stabilizer around the edge. Do not cut into any threads.

    Step 4:
    Very carefully run under water. I usually get it wet and let it sit in my hand for a minute or two. The stabilizer starts to dissolve and you can take your fingers and remover the rest. This is one time you want to leave some on your design. Lay on a non nap dish towel and blot excess water and leave to dry. Do not touch as when wet very delicate.

    Step 5:
    When the star is completely dry gather your pearls and rhinestones rhinestones.

    Step 6:
    Use enough clear dry glue that when you place the pearl on the star it will slightly come up the sides of the peal. You can see the amount I used and no worry as it dries clear.

    Step 7:
    Cut the ribbon to the desired length and tie at top in square knot.

    Meet The Author: Jayne Monsipapa
    Jayne Monsipapa has been digitizing for 24 years. It all started after walking into a sewing store in 1993 to buy a couple spools of thread and there was a sewing machine hooked up to a computer! Embroidering the designs were fun at first, but it did not take much to get hooked on digitizing. From 1993 until 1999 she worked on her digitizing skills and found her designs sewed out very good. With her husband’s encouragement Kinship Kreations LLC began in 1999 selling designs online. In those early years she took classes with both Walt Floriani and Lee Caroselli (Balboa Embroidery) who are both very talented and successful digitizers. Jayne joined the EmbroideryDesigns team in 2008.
