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.

The fabric you use for any design should always be at least 2" longer on all sides beyond the design area. This helps hold the fabric in the hoop or q-snap when you are stitching, and also allows you to stretch the piece for finishing.
