Don't leave the project in the hoop overnight. When you're done cross-stitching for the day don't forget to take it out of the hoop. Your embroidery project needs rest to!
And another important thing. No matter which direction your top leg of stitch is going, but please be sure that they are all going in the same direction.

When doing the cross stiches on garments the waste canvas is used.

Baste the waste canvas onto the right side of the regular fabric. Work the cross stitches through both layers of fabric. When all the stitching is done, the waste canvas is cut away around the design. Soak the design in water. This will disolve the starch that holds the threads of the waste canvas together. What is left of the waste canvas can then be pulled out from under the stitches, one thread at a time, with a pair of tweezers.
