Fairies


To embroider properly use a special cross stitch needle. Such needles do not have a point and are larger because the thread is also thicker.
In the average pack of needles, you will find different sizes.
There are also specific needlework needles that allow you to do a certain stitch better, such as a French knot.

Even if you think your hands are clean, you should wash them before you touch your cross-stitch fabric or your floss (embroidery thread).

Aida – Most beginners start their cross stitch projects on Aida fabric. This is a somewhat loosely woven fabric meant for cross stitch with prominent threads; looks like a fabric made of threads grouped together. It is also very inexpensive but not suitable for functional things because of the holes in the fabric. 14 count Aida is universally the most popular cross stitch fabric.

For beginners Aida is one of the best fabric for cross stitch, because of the readily available weaves. You may need to interface the cloth if it is too loose.
To prevent the floss from tangling, pull it gently but firmly. In case of knot insert tip of the needle downt though the tangle, and then pull it gently, it helps in most cases.
Consistent tension is crucial for creating proper stitches. They should be flat against the fabric, not too tight, not too loose. Experiment on scrap fabric until you learn how tightly you need to pull the floss to create a perfect stitch.
Traditionally, stitchers begin to stitch from the middle of the fabric to ensure the design is centered when finished. You may also count up from the center to the topmost left and begin stitching there.
