Table decoration vintage style

See in this DIY sample how you can create a table decoration in vintage style using 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 sample can be produced with any other machine of the Speedy laser engraver series.

Important:

Close the throttle valve to maximize the vacuum.


Step by Step

Step 1: Jute fabric

Make your design or use our template. Send it to the laser using the following print settings:

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

Step 2: Laser process jute fabric

Make the parameter settings. Our parameters can differ depending on the machine used and laser power available.

Tip: Iron the jute before engraving. You get better results if the material is very 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

Make your design or use our template. Send it to the laser using 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

Make the parameter settings. Our parameters can differ depending on the machine used and laser power available.

Tip: Make sure that you engrave on the front of the material (non-sticky).

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

Fix the fusible interfacing on the jute fabric. Use either an iron or a press. Position the lace design on the jute and press or iron it.

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

Important: Put a piece of fabric on the interfacing before you iron or press it. This prevents the material from eventually stick on the hot surface.

If you want to have your table decoration more country style, you can remove single jute threads and create fringes.
