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.







  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.
  5. Once the embroidery is complete, remove any excess stabiliser, and press with a hot iron.
  6. Cut fabric down to a octagon (8 sides), with an across width of 17”
  7. Take the 24” square of linen, press with an ironing aid, and trim down to an octagon with a 22½” across width.
  8. Use the sewing revolution tool to correctly measure in the sides of the octagon.

  9. Stitch, press, and place the embroidered piece inside.
  10. Hand stitch, or use a decorative machine stitch to complete.
