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.

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.
