What is cross-stitch?
Cross stitch is an ancient count of thread-like sashimi forms, one of the easiest to learn hand-made sashimi forms. Cross stitches are cross stitches on a uniform open fabric such as Aida or linen. The design can be traditional or modern or somewhere in between.Cross stitch designs are often sold as kits, but you can also buy fabrics, threads, and necessary supplies to create your design.
Step 1: Prepare the Dough:
Cross stitching can be done on various fabrics, but the most common is Aida and linen. Both materials tend to wear out when cut. It’s a good idea to tie the edges, especially if you embroidered a large project that requires a lot of work before you start coloring.To minimize chafing, zigzag the edges or use a zigzag stitch if available. If you don’t want to sew on the edges, you can also tie it up with masking tape.
Step 2: Find the Center of the Fabric:
To find the dough’s center, fold it in half on one side and then in half on the other side. Pinch the center point to create a fold and mark it. You can center the pin or make a small stitch to mark the center point even more.
Step 3. Use a hoop or Frames:
There are different styles of hoops and embroidery frames. It’s up to you how to use it. It may be easier for beginners to stitch the dough into the sashimi hoop.To use the hoop, first, loosen the screw and separate the two circles. Place the round object on a table or workbench without using screws. Ensure the center of the fabric is in the center of the embroidery frame, and place it over the embroidery frame. Place another circle on top of the dough and press down it until the dough is wedged between the two hoops. Pull gently on the fabric while tightening the hoop screws. Don’t pull the dough hard. The weave of the material will be distorted.
Step 4: Prepare the thread:
Please choose the color of the thread you are starting with and cut it to about 18 inches. If you go much longer than this, the chances of the lines getting tied while embroidering are higher.Most embroidery floss consists of six twisted threads. Usually stitch one or two strands at a time, depending on the fabric you are using.
To separate the strands:
- Take the strand with one hand and clamp the end of one strand with the other strand.
- Pull slowly and slowly until the strands separate from the rest.
- Pull out only one strand at a time. If you pull on a few strands, the thread may tie.
Step 5: Thread the Needle:
Cross stitching is usually done with tapestry needles with rounded ends. The size used depends on the fabric. Use the supplied arrow when sewing the kit. If not, read this article on choosing cross stitch needles.Thread the needle in the same way as for a hand sewing needle. Don’t tie a knot on your tail. Sew the ponytail without knots to secure it. In general, avoid using knots when cross stitching. This is because the knot can leave a lump in the finished product.
Step 6: make a row of Crosses:
Cross stitching is usually done in rows from the left to the right. Refer to the stitch chart to determine where to start sewing.Starting on the wrong side of the fabric, lift the needle forward through the hole, leaving about 2.5 cm of thread. When you work on the binding, you cover the tail with loops.
Tips and tricks:
You will soon get used to doing basic Cross Stitching. Here are some additional tips to keep in mind.Try to keep the loops slightly taut. Do not pull hard enough to deform the fabric and not loosen it enough to create gaps. Place the stitches on the material without pulling it tight.Please do not use a long jump thread on the wrong side of the fabric, as it may show through the front of the material. When moving to a new area, more than a few stitches are removed; you must end the thread and then restart it at the new location.
