Cross stitching on Waste Canvas / soluble canvas.

This is a method of doing cross stitch on a particular type of fabric which will tear off after the work is done - this way you can cross stitch on any type of fabric, regardless of the fact that the eave is not prominent on the fabric. The way you do it is to keep the waste canvas on the garment and work the design. After the work is done, the waste canvas is pulled away thread by tread, after slightly wetting it. The work will remain on the garment. Soluble canvas will wash away when soaked in warm water.

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.
