To begin, work a narrow hem or overlock stitch around your fabric to prevent fraying of the edges. Fold the fabric in half, then half again, finger press lightly. Run a basting stitch along each fold line to mark the center of the fabric. (These will be removed when stitching is finished.)

The best fabric for cross stitch other than even weave fabric and aida is Linen. Linen and evenweave look almost the same. Linen has small slubs in its surface but this wouldnot look so obvious once cross stitches are made. Linen has a beauty unparalleled as well as the weave is very apparent which makes it best for this embroidery.
