Table decoration vintage style

Learn from this DIY tutorial how you can make a vintage themed table decoration with jute fabric and fusible interfacing.


Preparation

Required material:

  • Jute fabric by the meter of cut, approx. 40 x 50 cm
  • fusible interfacing D24 H200, approx. 35 x 35 cm
  • Iron or press

Machine used:

  • Speedy 360
  • 80 watts
  • 2" lens
  • Nozzle with large diameter
  • Vacuum table with honeycomb cutting table

This tutorial can be performed with any other Speedy laser engraver.

Important:

Maximize the vacuum by shutting the throttle valve.


Step by Step

Step 1: Jute fabric

Design your own pattern or use the template we provide. Send it to your laser with the below printer settings:

Process mode Resolution Cut line
Standard 500 dpi None
Halftone Others
Color Optimized geometries
inner geometries first

Step 2: Laser process jute fabric

Set the parameters. The parameters we provide may change depending on the machine you are using and the laser power that you have available.

Tip: Before you engrave, iron the jute. You will obtain a nicer product if your material is extremely flat.

Color Process Power (%) Speed (%) ppi/Hz
Black Engrave CO2 75 80 500
Red (scratching) Cut CO2 13 1 1000
Blue Cut CO2 50 1.5 1000
Color Passes Air Assist Z-Offset Advanced
Black 1 on 20mm -
Red (scratching) 1 on 10mm 1
Blue 1 on - -

Step 3: Fusible interfacing

Either design your own graphic or use our files. Send it to the laser with the below print settings:

Process mode Resolution Cut line
Standard 333 dpi None
Halftone Others
Ordered Dithering Optimized geometries

Step 4: Laser process Fusible interfacing

Set the parameters. The parameters we provide may change depending on the machine you are using and the laser power that you have available.

Tip: Be sure that it's the non-sticky front side of the fusible interfacing that you're engraving.

Color Process Power (%) Speed (%) ppi/Hz
Black Engrave CO2 50 100 500
Red Cut CO2 15 2 1000
Color Passes Air Assist Z-Offset Advanced
Black 1 On - Optimized quality, correction 15
Red 1 On - -

 

 


Step 5: Finishing

Attach the fusible interfacing to the jute fabric with an iron or a press. Position the lace design onto the jute and press it into the material.

Settings:
Iron: Medium heat (level 2), 8 seconds
Press: 130 - 165°C, 8 seconds

Important: Place a piece of fabric onto the interfacing before ironing or pressing. This will prevent it from melting and sticking to the hot surface.

If you would rather your decoration have a more rustic look, remove individual threads from the jute to make fringes.
