Cross Stitch Tips

Before commencing your project it is essential to find the centre of the fabric .  Fold the fabric into four  which then gives you the centre of the fabric.

You may prefer to stitch some running stitches along the centre lines in a contrasting thread.  It is important that you commence at the centre and work the design outwards this is so the cross stitch is stitched within the fabric and there is a fabric border remaining to enable the needlework to be stretched and framed.

Cross Stitch projects will provide you with the design size, fabric size or frame size that is why it is important to begin in the centre and work outwards.
