The best way to do cross stitch is to do the first half of each stitch in a row done first then go back and finish the next half. This way you get all the stitches slanting in the same direction. It is very important that the slant is in the same direction for the top thread and the bottom thread of the cross stitch for all the stitches.
But there are expert cross stitchers who do individual cross stitches ( titching the full cross stitch as you go) and do a very good job of it. So each to his/ her own.

Plastic / fabric canvas – This is another medium on which cross stitching is done.
This is used for doing beautiful cross stitch designs on homedecor and accessories. The canvas used here is an open mesh. Fabric canvas is more finer than the plastic canvas. You may need to apply interfacing to the back of fabric canvas to use it for anything functional.
