    Final Product: What You Will Create

    Linen will shrink so wash and dry your fabric before you begin this project. As the weave of linen can be distorted when pulled in the hoop we will be hooping the stabilizer and holding the linen down with adhesive spray.

    Step 1:
    Pull threads down both sides and bottom edges and cut across the pulled thread line to cut your linen fabric to 16” x 45”. If the thread you are pulling breaks in the process cut down to the point where the thread broke and you should be able to pick up that or an adjacent thread to start pulling again.

    Fold up each end of the table runner 8” and finger press across the width of the runner.

    Step 7:
    Follow the color chart to embroider the design. In this sample the second color green was replaced with an Ombré Green Madeira (2033) to give a light striped effect in the leaves.

    Step 8:
    Remove from the hoop and tear away the excess stabilizer. The stabilizer remaining in the small areas will wash away when we later wash this project.
