Tips to get started with cross stitch
Here they are:
★ Print your pattern on normal paper or on water soluble paper if you decide to use that method.
★ Iron your fabric and let it cool down fully before tracing or sticking the paper.
★ If you choose to trace your pattern, pin the fabric to your piece of paper and look for light source that enables you to see the lines in transparency well enough.
★ Before you start, take a look at your pattern and figure out where the center is (follow the arrows on the pattern) then work your way around from there.
