Plastic / fabric canvas – This is another medium on which cross stitching is done.

This is used for doing beautiful cross stitch designs on homedecor and accessories. The canvas used here is an open mesh. Fabric canvas is more finer than the plastic canvas. You may need to apply interfacing to the back of fabric canvas to use it for anything functional.

Pick the color of floss you are starting with and cut a length about 18 inches long. If you go much longer than this, the thread is more likely to get knotted when you stitch.

Most embroidery floss is made up of six strands of thread twisted together. Depending on the fabric you are using, you will typically stitch with only one or two strands at a time.

To separate out a strand, hold the floss with one hand and pinch the end of one strand with the other. Gently and slowly pull the strand up and out until it is separated from the remaining strands. Only pull one strand at a time. Pulling multiple strands may cause the floss to knot.
