The ilhós should be embroidered one at the time. When they are small and done on light fabrics, the circle cover is drawn on the cloth, forcing the threads and opening the forced hole by the passing of the needle and the thread by the first opening; and, like this, circling it. There are embroiderers who use the fura-ilhó to make the hole. They are not urdidos, or do not require the initial thread to be lain down for embroidering over when very small ( 1 mm in diameter). However, when bigger in diameter, the embroiderers who do them neatly, laying a thread on the cloth before threading over; that is, they cover the circle drawn for the ilhó in cordão stitch on the thread.
The continental tradition of Tibaldinho embroidery is reported, appearing in the oldest representations of embroidery on the island.
