Once you have got a hang of the techniques of cross stitch you can use other fabric to do cross stitch designs like a woven fabric with an even weave . Even weave means the number of threads will be the same per inch horizontally as well as vertically, making perfect squares to do your cross stitch.You get cotton even weave fabric specifically suited for cross stitch in the stores.
