Everyone has trouble seeing stitches when she/he stitches white on white. The trick is to put a piece of black material behind the canvas. This will provide contrast between canvas and the white thread.
Material Type: Aida Generic White
Sewing Count: 14/inch or 55/100mm
Design Size: 140 x 110 stitches
Sewn Design Size: 10 x 7.9 inches or 254 x 200 mm
Suggested Material Size: 15.9 x 13.8 inches or 404 x 350 mm
Stitch Style: Cross-stitch Using 2 strands
When doing the cross stiches on garments the waste canvas is used.
Baste the waste canvas onto the right side of the regular fabric. Work the cross stitches through both layers of fabric. When all the stitching is done, the waste canvas is cut away around the design. Soak the design in water. This will disolve the starch that holds the threads of the waste canvas together. What is left of the waste canvas can then be pulled out from under the stitches, one thread at a time, with a pair of tweezers.
