If you are stitching using aida cloth that already has holes, you don’t need super sharp needles. More then that, you should prefer the rounded tip of a tapestry needle to ensure you don't accidentally split the fiber you're stitching with.

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.
