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.

Pick the color of floss you are starting with and cut a length about 18 inches long. If you go much longer than this, the thread is more likely to get knotted when you stitch.

Most embroidery floss is made up of six strands of thread twisted together. Depending on the fabric you are using, you will typically stitch with only one or two strands at a time.

To separate out a strand, hold the floss with one hand and pinch the end of one strand with the other. Gently and slowly pull the strand up and out until it is separated from the remaining strands. Only pull one strand at a time. Pulling multiple strands may cause the floss to knot.
