A cross stitch has two parts and can be worked in two ways – a complete stitch can be worked, or a number of half stitches may be stitched in one line and then completed on the return journey. Your cross stitch may face either direction but the most important rule is that all the top stitches should face the same direction!

Cross stitching on Waste Canvas / soluble canvas.

This is a method of doing cross stitch on a particular type of fabric which will tear off after the work is done - this way you can cross stitch on any type of fabric, regardless of the fact that the eave is not prominent on the fabric. The way you do it is to keep the waste canvas on the garment and work the design. After the work is done, the waste canvas is pulled away thread by tread, after slightly wetting it. The work will remain on the garment. Soluble canvas will wash away when soaked in warm water.
