Table decoration vintage style

In this DIY tutorial, you will learn how to create vintage style table décor with using just simple fabric and fusible interfacing.


Preparation

Materials required:

  • Jute fabric, cut in meters to approximately 40 x 50 cm
  • fusible interfacing D24 H200, approximately 35 x 35 cm
  • Press or iron

Laser machine used:

  • Speedy 360
  • 80 watts
  • 2" lens
  • Large diameter nozzle
  • Vacuum table with honeycomb cutting table

This application can be processed with the use of any system in the Speedy laser engraver series.

Important note:

To maximize the vacuum power and efficiency, close the throttle valve.


Step by Step

Step 1: Jute fabric

Use our provided template or create your own design, and then simply send it to the laser machine with the following settings programmed:

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

 

 


Step 2: Laser process jute fabric

Our parameters can vary depending on the specific laser system and power being used, and you can also make your own parameter settings to your desired specifications

Tip: Flatten the jute fabric with an iron or press prior to engraving to achieve the best results.

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

Using our provided template or your own design, send the file to the laser with the following print settings:

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

Step 4: Laser process Fusible interfacing

Our parameters can vary depending on the specific laser system and power being used, and you can also make your own parameter settings to your desired specifications

Tip: Engrave on the front of the material (non-sticky) only.

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

Secure the fusible interfacing onto the jute fabric using either a press or iron, and set the lace pattern on the jute in the same manner.

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

Important: Prior to pressing the fabric with a press or iron, place a piece of fabric on the interfacing to prevent the material from potentially sticking on the hot surface.

You can also change the motif of your table décor to your own specific liking. For example, you can create a more rustic look by removing some of the jute threads, resulting in a fringed appearance.
