OESD's Embroidery Online has been my go to for designs ever since I started machine embroidery. They have any type of design you can imagine. I was browsing their website and came across these stunning Freestanding Lace Chokers & Headbands set by Mo's Art Design Studio. Each design features intricate floral detail that are elegant enough for a wedding day and trendy enough for everyday. The appliqués can also be great embellishments for clothing, belts, and more.

DIY steps below and see just how simple it is to create these!

Begin by hooping with OESD's Aqua mesh water soluble stabilizer great for free standing lace. I also used Isacord Thread in neutral colors like muslin, black, and white.

I enjoyed watching my BERNINA 560E stitch each intricate design piece by piece.

I created all 3 headband designs because I wanted to use some of them to embellish clothing too.

I loved the choker that came with the delicate dangling attachments.

Once finished I trimmed close to the stitch line.

I then dipped each appliqué in luke warm water for the Aqua Mesh to disintegrate.

I really loved how these turned out.

Add ribbon, headbands, netting, and more to get the look you'd like. I topstitched the appliqués onto silk sashes I made. For the choker I attached cording and a clasp at the ends. You can customize these in all sorts of colors. These are great custom wedding accessories and gifts for brides and bridesmaids. Versatile looks for everyday or special occasions. You can even use them to embellish clothing and collar lines as shown in the photo on denim and a sash around the waist.
